Abstract

The prospects for Africa’s aquaculture are enormous. They are defned by the continent’s vast aquatic resources, land mass and climate that are suitable for the production of an array fsh species and essential inputs such as ingredients for feed. Of added advantage, is the fact that most of the world’s important tropical and sub-tropical aquaculture species are native to Africa. Of particular importance are the Tilapias (especially Oreochromis niloticus), African catfsh (Clarias gariepinus), seabass (Dicentrachus labrax), shrimp and prawns, and abalone (Haliotis sp). Africa’s youth that form the prospective work force improves prospects for sustainability.
