Under Component 1, the project is supposed to capacity-build mariculture farmers in finfish and shellfish production.
In order to support some of the existing farmers to stock their ponds in the move to enhance mariculture production, the project has mobilized finfish and shellfish farmers in Kilifi county to collect prawns and milkfish seeds to stock their ponds.
The mariculture technical team is assisting the community in pond preparation and collection of wild seeds for stocking. The farmers group will also be supported to purchase feeds.
The initial groups that the project has started to work with are located in Kibokoni, Mtongani and Ihaleni.
