The inserted picture shows floating cages located in Lake Mbolet in Gabon where Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) is the species cultured in these cages. The authorities in Gabon are encouraging the development of cage fish farming. It is believed that the new fish station that was inaugurated in July, 2013 and located few miles away from Lake Mbolet would support the development of cage fish farming in the lake. The station with its hatchery, food storage room, research laboratory and others has been constructed as a result of a partnership with the government of Japan.
