Zambia’s emerging aquaculture sector is set to be a key supplier of fish and other aquatic foods in sub-Saharan Africa. The sector already employs approximately 13,000 people. Fisheries have long been an important part of the economy and cultural heritage in Zambia. It may be landlocked, but 20 percent of its land is covered by water. In total, about 45 percent of the water resources in southern Africa are found in Zambia, which plays a key role in the fish trade in the region.

In anticipation of the 2023 African Chapter of the World Aquaculture Society (AFRAQ23) that will be held in November, a webinar will be held to cover developmental issues including the latest research and developmental aspects of aquaculture in Africa. As a sponsor and part of the technical organizing committee, WorldFish is excited to welcome our panel of experts who will also discuss the growth of Zambian aquaculture and explain how you can gain from this premier event for aquaculture in Africa.
