Cage culture of tilapia in Lake Kivu (Rwanda)

This project document has been developed by a group of trainees who participated during 2015 in the “Fish Culture Development – Africa training course” which is annually hosted by the Egyptian International Centre for Agriculture (EICA) in partnership with Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The proposed location of this project is Lake Kive , Rwanda. The project document started with background information on fish consumption in Rwanda and in the chosen location of the project. The consumer preference to tilapia has been also addressed. The selection of cage site, cage design and other elements are all covered with a target production of 40 tons of tilapia/year in two production cycles. The project documents also covers the source of project funding, project costs (fixed and operating) and cash flow. The project document is supported by Tables and diagrams.

This project is one of more group projects which have been supervised by Dr. Abdel Rahman El Gamal.
