(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroonian fish farmers met on May 14 and 15, 2019, under the supervision of the Ministry of Livestock, to define a strategy to increase aquaculture production in the country, it is officially reported.

Current aquaculture production is about 15,000 tons a year for an estimated 230,000 tons of total fish production. The farmers intend to increase aquaculture to limit massive imports, which absorbed XAF114 billion in 2017.

Government’s mid-term ambition is to increase its aquaculture production to 100,000 tons per annum.
