Aquaculture Development of High Importance to Angola

01 December 2014

ANGOLA - The Action Plan for the Development of Aquaculture for the 2014/2017 period, which at international level is of extreme importance, will bring about the sustainable development of this activity in the country, said Fisheries minister, Victória de Barros.

Victória de Barros explained that the national territory has good climate conditions and soil quality, as well as enough water for the development of aquaculture, reports AngolaPress.

"It is an activity that is also part of the guidelines within the government's policy, aimed at the diversification of our economy," stressed the Fisheries minister.

She further explained that the draft document of measures to be taken for the development of aquaculture has two main lines, one of which is turned to small production, designed for young people who, with some training and encouragement from the Fisheries Ministry, can get some earnings and provide some well-being to their respective families, as well as another project linked to the stimulation of commercial aquaculture, with the intervention of the private sector.

"So, we want to stimulate the entrepreneurs and the people who want to begin a business to venture to enter into the aquaculture activity, and for that we have the possibility to supply incentives to small production, especially in the case of the Aquaculture Centre of the northern Cuanza Norte Province," informed the minister.
