Mzimba fisheries office trains extension workers on basic fish farming practices

Mzimba District fisheries officer Andrew Saukani has called upon extension workers in the district to master the skills needed in fish farming in order to help grow the aquaculture industry among potential fish farmers in the district.

Speaking on Saturday at Mbalachanda Agriculture Office during an orientation of agriculture frontline workers on basic best aquaculture practices, Saukani said M’mbelwa District Council wants to scale up fish farming among communities by involving extensions workers based in various Extension Planning Areas.

“This training will help our extension workers hone knowledge on how to set up and manage fish ponds for people interested to venture into aquaculture”, he said.

Saukani said M’mbelwa District Council has 22 extension planning areas.
