– (Business in Cameroon) - Fishermen in Cameroon are being drilled by the United Nation’s Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) and the government of Japan on best practices in aquaculture with the aim of boosting harvest from the sector to bridge the demand/supply shortfall of fish in the country.

A five-day workshop to boost the development of aquaculture in Cameroon began on September 23, in Yaoundé under the patronage of the Minister of Livestock, Fisheries and Animal Industries, Dr. Taiga.

According to the Director of Fisheries and Aquaculture in the Ministry of Livestock, Fisheries and Animal Industries, Dr. Belal Emma in a recent workshop in Yaounde, the country spends over FCFA 100 billion to import almost half (200,000) metric tons of fish it consumes annually.
