In Ghana, we believe that for aquaculture to stay with the people in a community, the various stakeholders and key players in the community need to be brought on board. The insert shows the opinion leader, who also doubles up as the leader of the community outreach fish farm delivering a speech to his local people in the Asuogyaman District. Looking on is the local chief and other opinion leaders in the community. The insert below, also shows school children (future leaders) present at the community gathering.
In fact, this picture was taken when a delegation from the U.S Embassy in Ghana visited the community as they had assisted them in establishing cage aquaculture.
