Ghana Govt. appeals private sector to boost aquaculture

The Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture Development, Sherry Ayittey, has requested the private sector participation in developing aquaculture, after highlighting the viability of the business venture. Speaking at the 32nd National Farmers’ Day celebrations at Kintampo, the minister appealed private sector actors to support the development of aquaculture along its value chain, especially in the areas of financing and technical assistance. In addition, the official stressed the fact that the Ministry has created an enabling environment for the private sector to leverage on to help boost aquaculture in the country, GhanaWeb reported. The Minister cited the 5-year Ghana National Aquaculture Development Plan (GNADP), aimed at enhancing and improving the sector as one key avenue, viable for private sector participation. With the USD 85 million plan, the government intends to increase aquaculture production from 27,250 metric tonnes in 2013 to 100,000 metric tonnes in 2018 and is also expected to create an estimated 220,000 jobs across the value chain in aquaculture development.
