Update: 6:29PM MONTFORT Boys Town students are using natural feeding methods for their Fish farms in order to create a cost-effective way to breed Fish in villages.

Director of Monfort Boys Town Dr Jim Madavana said they are trying to teach the boys how natural feeding methods for Fish Farms would be commercially viable to use in a rural setting.

"There is a need to teach these boys how commercially viable fish farming would be when natural feeding methods are being used instead of opting to use artificial feed for Fish which could cost a lot more," Dr Madavana said.

Six ponds in Monfort Boys Town are currently being used to breed Tilapia Fish which will be harvested within the next five months.
