Cluster program boosts tilapia production

By REPEKA NASIKO

Update: 1:02PM SMALLHOLDER tilapia farmers from the Western Division are working in a cluster program that brings together competitors to improve production.

A collaborative effort of the Secretariat of the South Pacific, the European Union and the Ministry of Fisheries and Forests, the program has brought together farmers to improve their economic scale and increase their bargaining power of inputs such as fish feed or hatchery seed supply.

SPC cluster aquaculture team member Jone Varawa said: "The production of the tilapia by participating farmers in the Central Division cluster in the 2013 to 2014 period has doubled in comparison with the 2011 to 2012 period prior to the IACT project intervention."
