Standard Digital News - Kenya : Karatina University College to start fish farming courses next year

Standard Digital News - Kenya : Karatina University College to start fish farming courses next year | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it
A university plans to launch a fisheries curriculum to boost fish farming in Central Kenya.

 

The Karatina University College in Nyeri will admit the first batch of students in January next year for degree, diploma and certificate courses that will dwell on the practical, technological and market issues of commercial fish farming.

Plans for the curriculum emerged during a forum convened by the university, which brought together fishing industry stakeholders.

 

 Speaking at the forum, the Karatina University Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Academics, Prof Peninah Aloo, noted that Nyeri’s potential in fish farming was under-exploited. “The Nyeri environs have such good ecological conditions for fish breeding, and the current level of production of fish is far below the ideal potential of this region,” said Prof Oloo. She said that to achieve the dream of sustainable food productivity, all stakeholders had to invest in realistic training objectives and the forthcoming curriculum was part of the strategy.
