(Business in Cameroon) - Abong-Mbang is set to become an important fresh water fish production town in Cameroon as a result of the fish production ‘agropole’ launched by government last weekend.

According to official estimates, the project which was developed by twenty people,will increase the yearly freshwater fish production from 37 tons (actually) to 183 tons in Haut-Nyong.

The increase is due to government’s financial supporrt. Indeed, with the funds provided, 1.2 million fries will be available (instead of the 80,000 currently available). Producers will also be able to buy 500 tons of fish feeds while the current purchase volume is 20 tons.

For the record, through the agro pole project, steered by the economy ministry, government plans to boost local livestock production and limit the massive imports of food products. It also seeks to help create revenue-generating activities for residents in rural areas.
