The first floating cage in Burundi was installed in April 2012 in the lake Dogodogo, Cibitoke province. This cage is 6×6 m, and has 4 compartments. The juveniles of Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus have been stocked  in the cage. The first picture shows the cage during assembling near the beach, the next shows the cage already fixed in the lake, the last picture show stocking of tilapia juveniles in the cage.
