Fish farming in Ghana – Development challenges (Emphasis on tilapia) – Video

Video ownership: The World Bank Ghana Office in collaboration with World Bank-Africa Region

Video submitted by: Alain Murekambanze (Burundi)

This 11-min interesting video was filmed in 2007. Even though the video is titled “Aquaculture development in Ghana”, the focus has been placed on tilapia farming.  The harvesting and grading of Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus in a commercial fish farm were covered in the video and served as a live background to the description given by the key speaker. The speaker highlighted the demand and supply for tilapia and the need for tilapia farming in Ghana. The sustainability of fish farming in Ghana has been addressed especially in regard to fish feed which is imported as the establishment of fish feed mills is probably not feasible at the moment. Fish trade has been adequately covered especially the need for credit and micro-finance systems.
