The Nkam Division in the Littoral region of Cameroon will now contribute to efforts to promote aquaculture in Cameroon, with a view to reducing massive imports of frozen fish into the country.
Indeed, the agropolis project led by the Ministry Economy has just launched (in particular in the locality of Massoumbou near Yabassi) an agropolis for the production and marketing of fish. This project, it has been officially announced, will produce 1440 tons of fish each year and 1.7 million fry.
Named the Wouri Bwele-Bakoko agropolis, this project, in which a group of aquaculturists and the State of Cameroon invested CFAF 1.2 billion, is expected to result in the creation of 30 direct jobs and around 100 indirect jobs.
As a reminder, the Agropoles project, which has just launched its 49th project on Cameroonian territory, was created with the objectives to promote income-generating activities in rural areas in order to limit the exodus of young people; And to boost domestic agro-pastoral production, with a view to reducing food imports.
