Participatory research boosts catfish egg, fry production in Cameroon

The omnivorous African sharptooth catfish is a valuable species suitable for culture by smallholder farmers in Cameroon. A five-year research project that brought farmers together with research interests established simple, but effective approaches to increasing catfish fingerling production through improved egg handling, antipredation measures, and higher-density stocking options.
