Recognizing the need to increase Nigeria's domestic fish production to meet growing demand, Chi Farms is expanding its capacity to produce high quality inputs for smallholder fish farmers. Smallholder farmers will have access to high quality juvenile catfish from Chi Farms' multiple hatcheries, as well as aquaculture management training and financial tools to provide the knowledge necessary to build successful aquaculture businesses. Chi Farms is also expanding its current feed production to include high quality aqua feed, which will not only benefit fish farmers, but also soybean and maize farmers supplying raw material for the feed.
Outcome: 1,000 smallholder fish farmers will receive access to high quality inputs, including fingerlings. Chi Farms will purchase commodities from 2,700 soybean farmers and 3,600 maize farmers.
