Forty youths, on Wednesday, benefited from the Lagos State Government’s empowerment programme that provided 40 cages stocked with 1,000 juvenile catfish respectively in the sea caging culture system at Afowo Community in Badagry.

Speaking during a facility tour of the Cage Culture Project, the State Commissioner for Agriculture, Prince Gbolahan Lawal stated that the Cage Culture System of Fish Farming is one of the ways being championed by the State Government to maximise the benefits of the abundance of water resources which account for about 22 percent of the State’s landmass.

Describing the Cage Culture Project as economical use of open water to develop aquaculture and improve nutrition, Lawal said that the system is an environment-friendly way of increasing fish supply as well as reducing foreign exchange expenditure on fish importation.

He maintained that the cage culture would create employment opportunities both directly and indirectly, explaining that the system is a cheaper method of fish rearing in their natural habitat and projecting that no fewer than 40,000 fishes would be harvested at the Afowo Fish Farm, Badagry, at the end of the four-month rearing period.

“I am particularly happy and satisfied that the local community has shown her unflinching support for this initiative right from the installation stage. I am even more delighted that the cages were constructed with native material and the fish would be fed just like in concrete fish ponds,” the Commissioner averred.

Commending the 40 beneficiaries, Lawal implored other fish farmers in the State to take advantage of the Cage Culture initiative and expressed the government’s readiness to support and partner with anyone or group willing to contribute to food security in the State.
