Integrated Aquaculture and Crops Production in West Africa

Posted: Wednesday, 25 July 2018

SkyFox Aquaculture Investments is a special Initiative of SkyFox Ltd to create unlimited opportunities for the people to participate in the life changing and lucrative aquaculture industry in Africa. We mobilize investors to finance the construction and management of aquaculture production facilities, and lease these to resource poor families, women and youth entrepreneurs to produce fish. We manage water supply for the fish farming, organize all inputs and expertise within the farm, thereby simplifying and reducing the cost of logistics for our clients. Each entrepreneur is assigned an expert to guide them throughout the production cycle in order to boost their productivity. The pond water is discharged daily and replaced with fresh water; about 80% of water for daily replacement is recycled. In the dry season, the waste water is channeled to irrigation fields through a network of pipes to produce crops. SkyFox Limited is implementing this initiative in Ghana, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Burkina Faso in 2017. We will extend to Liberia in 2019.
