Dear All

As most of you know a strong interest in the use of Biofloc Technology (BFT) for tilapia farming has emerged in South Africa during the past year.

Chris Schnell who has received training in BFT and has practical experience with systems, has agreed to provide a short course on its implementation.

The course will not have a strong focus on the technical side of BFT (reading material will be provided to participants prior to the course). Instead, it will focus on the requirements and parameters for a successful system.

The course will be presented on the morning of Saturday 11 January 2014. It will take place in the proximity of Pretoria - the venue will be finalised based on the number of attendees. The cost will be R250.00 (there might be a small additional fee added to this depending on the venue used).

Please let me know if you are interested in attending by emailing me at
