Progress in Fish farm and Industrial Attachment

We have come up with drying our catfish to save cost and attract markets. We started with four fish tanks from MTNFand now we have generated fifteen fish tanks including those from FADAMA and SNEPCOrespectively. Three disadvantaged youths have been sustained so far with the proceeds.We met officials from Institute of Oceanography and Marine Research Victoria Island Lagos for a structure of oven for drying fish. Having seen their own, our Welding Section successfully built one in use since the end of March 2013. We save extra costs for extra feeds to keep them in water when sales are slow. Any of the students can take up fish farming in part or whole from the experience of our Centre. Industrial attachment is one of the processes to pass through to qualify for graduation in our Centre. This helps them adjust to the environment they meet when they leave us. Our students started this at the beginning of April and will round it up by the second week of May 2013.Our graduation comes up in August 2013 for this set. We remain grateful to our Donors for their concern and care that have led us this far. We hope to get funders to continue this bulk training when MTNF exits after four years of two sets of students.Thanks again to our donors.
