Denis OpioFish NutritionistNaFIRRI/ARDC KajjansiGood content (improvable) regarding ponds and cages. Tank culture is picking up in urban areas. Include content on management of treated water used in tank culture and waste management, in view of limitless space in these areas. Talk about aquaponics

MMargaret Aanyusenior research officernational agricultural research organisation, aquaculture research and development center-kajjansiThe management guidelines are taking a good direction. I notice they are mainly focusing on catfish. Please consider providing for Nile tilapia as well given that it is a key farmed species in Uganda and other East African countries
