FISH FEED INITIATIVE: IMPORTATION AND SALE OF TILAPIA FEED
 
The Seafood Industry Development Company Limited has supported aquaculture initiatives of the Ministry of Food Production in Tilapia Farming in a number of significant ways.

One major contribution is the importation of a good quality and reasonably-priced tilapia feed made available to tilapia farmers. This tilapia feed is regularly imported and stored at the SIDC’s compound in Charlieville in an air-conditioned insulated shipping container under strict bio-secure protocols. The pelleted tilapia ration is a high quality fish feed at significantly reduced costs compared to other feeds and comes in a variety of pellet sizes including 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm and above, as well as high protein powder and crumble rations. Crude protein content ranges from 45% to 32%. Tilapia farmers have been able to get fresh supplies of feed on demand.

FINANCIAL LITERACY PROGRAMME FOR FISHING COMMUNITIES

The SIDC as part of its Capacity Development Programme initiated a project, “Financial Literacy Programme for Fishing Communities” in collaboration with the Central Bank’s National Financial Literacy Programme. The first training session on Money Management was conducted for the Felicity/Charlieville and Blue River/Bamboo/Cunupia fishing communities on Sunday 23rd March, 2013 at the Central Regional Indoor Sport Arena.

The SIDC recognizes the importance of wealth creation in fishing communities as a means of socio-economic development for residents and supports the formation of sustainable and profitable community-based business enterprises (CBBEs) which will contribute towards employment opportunities, income generation and poverty reduction for stakeholders in fishing communities.
