Aquaculture is a sector representing today more than 55% of aquatic food supply for human consumption. IORA region represents 23 % of global aquaculture production. It is a growing sector using more and more aquatic species and developing new production techniques.
The IORA Secretariat will organise a training workshop in Zanzibar, United Republic of Tanzania, to demonstrate the seeding of sea cucumber and seaweed tubular farming method, and transfer this knowledge and techniques to the participants. The training workshop will also cover areas of hatchery and grow-out, biosecurity and fish health best management practices for successful and sustainable aquaculture.
The training workshop is facilitated by the IORA Secretariat with the technical assistance of COFREPECHE. It is part of an AFD (French Development Agency) technical assistance to the IORA Secretariat for the implementation of the Blue Economy Work Plan 2020-2021 of the IORA Working Group on the Blue Economy, with a particular focus on fisheries, aquaculture, and the marine environment.
