The photos show an education facility located in Loumbila, 25 Km from Ouagadougou (the capital).

In this privately-owned facility (school), the primary school teachers are trained on the breeding of catfish in order to allow them to acquire the technical knowledge on catfish breeding.

The system comprises of an overhead tank which receives its water through pumping and then supplies the water by gravity to wooden tanks coated inside with plastic sheets. The water gets oxygenated during its trip from the overhead reservoir to the grow-out wooden tanks.

The second picture which is taken in the same facility shows the phase just before emptying of catfish out of the tank.
