Project goal is to restore endangered fish species through sustainable rural fish farming. Project objectives include; To address growing decline and gradual extinction of the cat and tilapia fish species through controlled culture method as a livelihood empowerment strategy (aquaculture), and to provide an alternative livelihood practice for women of Shiroro community with a view to addressing their frustration at low agricultural yields arising from climate-impacted farming system.
