Uganda: How Biotechnology Can Be Used to Improve Aquaculture
Aquaculture, the farming of aquatic animals, has been identified by the government as means to improve food and nutrition security and contribute to economic activity and household incomes.
Fish is a priority commodity under Development Strategy and Investment Plan (DSIP) for the agriculture sector.
However, current production of 90,000 tonnes per annum indicated by the ministry of Agriculture does not meet domestic and external market demand, despite the existing potential.
