The following is an excerpt from an article published by The Citizen:

  •  According to him, they target hotels and ordinary people will purchase the products which are sold at their outlets.
  •  During the production they will focus on working with more women because currently the number of women in fish business is on the rise.

Dar el Salaam - Fish farming with the aid of advanced technology is one of the ways that can boost fish production to support the government initiative to bolster food security in Tanzania.

Jamvi, a startup which has invested in fish farming hopes to turn the fortunes in the industry through technology.

Through recycling aqua system they are seeking Sh45 million to accommodate the installation of infrastructure to kick start operations.

Jamvi founder Mr Shadrack Kamfnya says they have already finalised talks with a Dutch company for the supply of the machines and its installation.

“Soon after the equipment is installed by end of December before we start production. We have also identified some shops, selling outlets where we will be supplying fish once production starts,” he said.

Mr Kamfnya says that they intend to harvest up to 20 tonnes of tilapia and catfish annually.

“Our strategic plan is to harvest up to 4 tonnes of fish every four months.”

According to him they target hotels and ordinary people will purchase the products which are sold at their outlets.

During the production they will focus on working with more women because currently the number of women in fish business is on the rise.

He says that there are women have undergone training on record management, accounting and customer care adding that this would increase job creation for women though jobs will depend on the work but they are optimistic direct and indirect jobs will be available.

The YY production process at Til-aqua: Once we have developed the YY-male it is easy to produce also a YY-female. With these YY-parent stock mass production of YY is possible. These YY-males are sold as set with our special strains of mixed sex for the normal (XX) females or as YY-male solo to use with your own female line! Our YY-line and mixed sex lines are from complete different origin.  Crossing these lines causes heterosis effect or hybrid-vigor: the result is NMT a strong, resistant and well performing all male Tilapia.(Image: Courtesy Til-Aqua INternational)

Speaking to the Citizen, Big Fish Company manager Mr Pastory Barnabas said that due to demand they are working on a technology that will enable them grow male tilapia to sell to out growers.

He says they installed technology to produce male tilapia fish early last year to enable increase production capacity of fish in the country.

The YY male tilapia technology adopted from Holland is based on the genetic manipulation of sex. This is achieved through a mixed sex of feminization and progeny testing to identify the novel YY genotype.

After mixing them, he said last April to produce male fish fingers and sold thousands of them to aquafarmers in Arusha, Dodoma, Mtwara and Dar es Salaam.

The Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries puts Tanzania's fish production in the range of 325,000 to 380,000 tonnes per annum while the demand stands at over 700,000.

According to reports, YY male technology is safer for fish and results in greater fingerling survival rates as it avoids the risks associated with hormones usage.

Tanzania is rich in fisheries resources from marine, freshwater, rivers and wetland species but the sector faces a shortage of fish supply.(continued...)
