The inserted photo was taken on March 01, during the first technical day of the “Small-scale aquaculture” training course. This 12-day course is organized by the Egyptian International Centre for Agriculture (EICA). The course hosts 25 participants from 21 African countries.
My contribution to this course includes two lectures and then supervising group activities on the promotion of small-scale aquaculture in home countries. There is a general discussion session scheduled on March 11; a day before graduation. A major component of this course is field visits to fish farms, fish hatcheries, feed mills, research centers. It is always a pleasure to contribute to the capacity building for motivated personnel as in this wonderful group.
