A two-person USDA aquaculture team was asked by AU-IBAR, ANAF, and FAO to review the current status of commercial aquaculture in Ghana, Uganda, Kenya and Nigeria. The team travelled from July 7 through July 28, 2013 and saw the breadth of the industry – feed suppliers, hatcheries (seed suppliers), table fish production in cages, ponds and tanks, and fish marketing venues. They met with a wide range of government officials, private farmers and various fish associations and thank all of those involved for their efforts.
