Catfish farmers call for feed mill in Nigeria

In 2008, a group of World Bank experts studied the catfish industry in Nigeria and proposed that one of the ways for small farmers to make a profit was for someone to start a commercial fish feed plant for catfish cooperatives, to enable them to cut production costs.

Emmanuel Akinwale, Operations Manager for Aquapro in Ibadan, Nigeria, put out a plea through the Sarnissa news forum this week for someone to do just that. “Can someone please start a commercial fish feed mill?” he asked.
