CAGED FISH

The East African - - BUSINESS -

Cage aquaculture is a sys­tem in which fish are con­fined in a rigid en­clo­sure in ex­ist­ing wa­ter re­sources such as lakes, oceans and rivers. This way, it is easy to mon­i­tor the fish, feed and har­vest them. The cages al­low the sur­round­ing wa­ter to pass freely be­tween the fish. Strong cur­rents flush through the cages through­out the day, and cre­ate favourable con­di­tions for the fish in­clud­ing main­tain­ing the qual­ity of the wa­ter and man­ag­ing waste. The en­vi­ron­ment mir­rors that of wild fish.
