Deputy Dutch Ambassador Visits TriMark
The Deputy Dutch Ambassador, Embassy of the kingdom of the Netherlands Ghana, Katja Lasseur visited TriMark Aquaculture Centre on the 20th of February, 2019
The purpose of the visit was to observe how the center utilizes the incubator hub and funds received from the Dutch government of which Trimark Aquaculture Centre is of no exception.
Founder and Centre Manager of TriMark Aquaculture Centre, Mark Yeboah- Agyepong and some staff members led
the team through the major activities on the production site.
Some of TriMark’s activities on the site includes the treatment and usage of wastewater to culture jumpers into grown fishes for brood stock to aid in the production of fingerlings.
The brood stocks are used to produce fingerlings at the on- site hatcheries and the remaining brood stock sold out to farmers as a means of generating income.
Also, the fingerlings produced are cultured in on- site concrete tanks of a table size of average 500grams and the remaining are sold out to other fish farmers in need of African catfish fingerlings as other means of generating income for the centre.
All said and done, the team satisfied beyond content, congratulated TriMark Aquaculture Centre for their good and remarkable work and encouraged them to keep it up.
Gracing the occasion was Dr. Philip Amoah of the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) and Janet Arthur of the Waste, Sanitation and Hygiene, Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ghana and Gladys Ofei, a Senior Trade &Information Officer at the Netherlands Embassy, Accra.
TriMark therefore acknowledges the support of VIA water/ Aquaculture for all (Netherlands), Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), International Water Management Institute (IWMI), and Waste Enterprises.
