Tilapia Aquaculture Business for Ethiopia

Culturing fish is a very old practice in Africa, although commercial production of fishes is still developing throughout the continent. Some species and strains of fishes are in particular suitable for commercial production. The Nile Tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) is one of these very important fishes, introduced from Africa and the Middle East to several countries elsewhere in the world. Now it has become popular in commercial and
subsistence aquaculture ventures. China and other Asian countries are famous for their bulk contribution to global aquaculture production of tilapia and other fishes. The sector incorporates not only rearing fish for harvest, but also hatcheries, feed processing, environmental issues, genetic and species diversity, post-harvest processing, economics, as well as improvements through research and knowledge transfer.

Value Chain Study on Dairy Industry in Ethiopia

AACCSA has been implementing a three years’ project entitled “Strengthening the Private Sector in Ethiopia” with a budget obtained from Royal Danish Embassy. One of the key interventions planned under this project includes conducting value chain analysis (VCA) with a view to outline the manufacturing sector in Ethiopia. The study output will be used (i) as a need assessment for the provision of support services which are planned to enhance overall capacity of the target groups, including members of the chamber, for greater contribution in the development process of the country (ii) to design the entire monitoring and evaluation process of the action, (iii) to gauge AACCSA advocacy efforts on the particular challenges and bottlenecks that shall be identified.
