Updated: Nov 22, 2018
TriMark Aquaculture Center has, over the period, had the honor of people from local and International bodies as well as individual stakeholders visiting the production site.
Among these dignitaries were delegates from the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ghana represented by the Senior Policy Officer in charge of water management, Mr. Fred Smiet, along with Janet Arthur; the officer in charge of sanitation and hygiene.
They were there as part of familiarization and monitoring of all Government-of-the-Netherlands sponsored projects.
VIA water/Aqua for all (The Netherlands), the major sponsor for the SaniFish project, also visited for a mid-year review of the project. They were represented by Shabana Abbas. Another team from the Ghana Climate Innovation Centre (GCIC) also paid a visit to the site.
The project partners, International Water Management Institute (IMWI) represented by Dr. Philip Amoah, and Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) also paid regular visitations to the site for progress monitoring. KMA was represented by Mr. Ossei Asibbey, the Deputy Director of Waste and Environment and Mr. Joshua Tetteh; Planning officer.
Other individuals including a consultant on the SaniFish and CapVal Project from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, in the person of Dr. Nelson W. Agbo visited the site to share expert ideas towards improving production. We witnessed a similar visit by Glover H M Casilla, an engineer of wastewater treatment plants also visited the site to assess the efficiency of the treatment plants.
Finally, the last crop of personalities who seldom visit the production site are the opinion leaders and residence of the Chirapatre estate township.
