Aquaculture technology research for smallholder farmers in rural malawi

In order to develop aquaculture systems and technologies relevant to the maize-based famring system in rural Africa, ICLARM is conducting farmer-participatory research in Malawi. This involves farmer-researcher interaction throughout the aquaculture program. The whole research process involves a continuing transfer of information and ideas between farmers and researchers so that research agendas can be adjusted to meet changing needs as indigenous aquaculture systems evolve.
