Country events: Horizon Aquaculture Outlet Launch in Zambia

Horizon Aquaculture with support from the Aquaculture Technical Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training Project (AQ TEVET) - led by WorldFish and in partnership with Musika and other partners - will be launching fourth outlet in Kasama, Zambia. Horizon Aquaculture has been helping Zambian fish farmers to build the aquaculture space in Zambia by providing feed, fingerlings, equipment, microfinance, technical assistance, and access to markets for all fish farmers. The Zambian Government has prioritized aquaculture development to drive the economic diversification agenda, and in order to provide an affordable animal protein source, address the fish deficit and generate employment and income for the Zambian population.

The AQ TEVET Project is designed to enhance the linkages between the private sector and smallholder commercial fish farmers, improving their ability to organize for improved input supply, aggregation and sale of their outputs as well as their greater participation in other aquaculture value chain activities. The other component of the project aims to upgrade the current fisheries science curriculum and training tools, providing young men and women interested in aquaculture with skills that are relevant to the employment market, particularly the private sector. The launch of the New horizon outlet in Kasama is as a result of the interventions of the project and also showcases the private sector's commitment to investing in the smallholder sector.

WorldFish along with partners from Horizon Aquaculture, Musika, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries, smallholder farmers and others will attend the project outlet launch on 31 May from 9.00 am to 10.00 am. The new outlet will be located in Kasama Township, the heart of the Northern Province of Zambia, currently considered as the province with the highest numbers of smallholder fish farmers.
