Form 4 Agriculture Field Trip
On Friday, 15th September, the Form 4 Agriculture class visited Zambia’s biggest aquaculture research facility and government agency for fish farming, the National Aquaculture Research and Development Centre (NARDC) in Kitwe.
Here, the students learnt about fish farming and were enlightened on the advantages and drawbacks of the practice. They were educated on fish breeding, production of quality fish seed and the several fish species in Zambia as they toured part of the 84 ponds at NARDC. There is a great need for sustainable fish farming practices and cultures in Zambia making Aquaculture an essential sector in the country.
The experience at NARDC therefore encouraged students to look at fish farming in more depth and laid a foundation for them to pursue aquaculture in the near future. We thank our Agriculture department for organizing such an informative trip and thank the National Aquaculture Research and Development Centre for having us.
