Maintenace of cages in Lake Volta



As cage aquaculture continues to boom in the Asuogyaman District of Ghana, more and more people get employment in diverse fields.

The insert shows a diver in a private cage farm in Lake Volta. His work primarily is to dive into the lake to check the conditions of the cages. This involves inspecting to see if there are thorn nets so they could be repaired immediately or changed as the case may be and inspecting of the cage anchors in the lake. He may occasionally double his work as a feeder too.
