Dear All

The National Aquaculture Strategic Framework is now available on the website  http://www.thetilapiasite.co.za/file_list.php for your perusal. It details government’s approach to the sector. Please take some time to review it and make yourself aware of where government would like to head with aquaculture.

While it is still early days and lot of things still need to happen (and can change along the way). The framework certainly represents a step in the right direction. The challenge now, for all of us, is to ensure that momentum is maintained behind the strategic elements of the action plan.

The review of legislation and institutional arrangements governing aquaculture, is but one of the actions that need to be taken. There is still a lot of work that needs to be done – at least we know that the ball is rolling.
