As part of activities to round up the 7th batch of GPI entrepreneurial training, trainees who took part in the farm farming component were equipped with the market opportunities in the fish processing sector of the economy and they were encouraged to harness the skills acquired from the training as means of getting themselves self-employed so as to become economically independent. The unit employed the services of a Fish Market Development Consultant, in the Niger Delta region of the country to take trainees through the process of processing fish for different consumption purposes different from the conventional way of processing fish.
Fifty-eight (58) trainees were taken through the procedures and were able to come up with products such as: fish pizzas, Fish soya, fish shawarma and fish gala etc. All these are consumables that are currently trendy in the fish sector.
Participants demonstrated high sense of commitment as most of them were able to carry out the procedures independently.
