Dear Member

I would like to start by reminding those of you that have not yet completed the survey (, to please do so, the closing date is the end of the month.

I also have some good news to share, a tilapia farmers meeting will be held on the 16th of February 2013. The meeting will take place in Gauteng and there will be a nominal fee for attending – the exact venue will be advised early next week.

At the meeting the following will be discussed:

  1. Feedback/analysis of the recently completed survey
  2. Development of partnerships with relevant bodies/institutions
  3. Regulatory framework

               i)alien species

               ii)certification of systems

               iii)norms and standards for tilapia producers in SA

Please indicate your interest in attending by emailing me at this will help us determine the number of attendees and consequently the size of the venue we need to use for the meeting.

I would appreciate it if I could have your response by the end of the week.
