Zimbabwean fish farming gets stocking, restocking boost

Staff Writer |
The Government has launched a stocking and restocking programme on Zimbabwean dams to boost fish production countrywide.

The stocking and restocking programme, which is in line with the economic blueprint, Zim-Asset's, Food Security and Nutrition Cluster, will also help alleviate poverty across the country.

According to the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority, the programme is aimed at ensuring that all provinces attain their potential in aquaculture projects.

Zimparks spokesperson Caroline Washaya-Moyo said the programme will also pursue an affirmative action approach.

"The marginalised groups of society; women and the poor, are targeted for the programme," she said.

ZimParks is implementing the programme with assistance from the Zimbabwe National Water Authority and rural district councils.
