The SAI is grateful to PENTAIR Aquatic Ecosystems for it’s generous donation of equipment (pumps, blowers, filters etc.) valued at $130,000. Coordination of distributing the donated equipment is being handled by the American Tilapia Association, the SAI and Operation Blessing , based in Virginia Beach, VA (with relief centers in Haiti). Operation Blessing hauled, shipped and stored the donated equipment. This equipment will be distributed to qualified enterprises and individuals we work with to set up their own fish production systems in Haiti. Furthermore, some of this equipment will be put to use to address the critical issue of drinking water purification for human consumption.
