Dear All

The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) in collaboration with the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) will be hosting a workshop in Polokwane on the Aquaculture Development and Enhancement Programme (ADEP). Please see the invitation at

They will be unpacking the fund at the workshop and giving some insight into how an aquaculture venture can qualify for this incentive. If you are in the region I really encourage you to make an effort to attend and gain first-hand knowledge with respect to this programme.

If you are aware of other people who are interested in freshwater aquaculture and do not receive our newsletter please pass this information on to them.

We are currently trying to help DAFF establish potential attendance numbers for the workshop and I would appreciate it if you could let me know whether you will be attending by 10am on Monday. You can email me at or on my mobile: 082 431 2608.

I realise this is short notice but TAASA was only asked for assistance this afternoon and I will appreciate your assistance in spreading the word.
