Returning to Haiti – 05/11/12

April 18th, 2012 @   -  No Comments

We just purchased plane tickets for a trip to Haiti from 5/11-5/18. The purpose of this trip will be to assist with the first fish harvest at the Henri Christophe School in Marigot when the tilapia that were stocked in the basin in November 2011 will be harvested and sold in local market to raise money for the school. We will also be assisting with an Aquaculture Training Course in Leogane to teach local organizations about sustainable aquaculture practices in Haiti. There will be a broad range of topics covered and include how to install low-resource aquaculture systems, produce alternative tilapia feedĀ  using local resources, and monitor fish health and growth. We cannot wait to return to Haiti to reconnect with friends, see how our fish have grown, and help further spread sustainable aquaculture practices throughout Haiti!
