Fish farming has long been seen as a promising solution to combat food insecurity in low-income countries. However, the lack of local fish feed production has been a major obstacle to its success. Despite various initiatives launched over the years to promote fish farming, the lack of access to fish feed has hindered their intended impact, as insufficient feed results in underdeveloped fish stocks, poor harvests, and limited income.
Simulation-driven Participatory Technology Development was used to develop a Pellet Machine needed for on-site fish feed production. The machinery produces high-quality fish feed and empowered the rural communities to produce their own fish feed using locally available resources.
