A RuralNet Partner in Aquaculture Development

Cage Aquaculture Cluster Project

WHERE WILL THE PROJECT BE IMPLEMENTED?

The Cage Aquaculture Cluster Project will be launched on Chinweshiba Lake in Samfya where RuralNet Logistics partners, Abashila Investments Limited, have established a fish hatchery plant. It is anticipated that this service will spread first in Samfya and then to the rest of Luapula and crossing into Northern Province.

WHO WILL PROVIDE THE FINGERLINGS?

A cluster anchor business, a hatchery run by Abashila Investment Limited, was established in mid-2018 to supply fingerling in Samfya and beyond. At its full capacity, Abashila will produce about 4 million fingerlings per year.

HOW MANY GROUPS WILL BE ON THE PROJECT?

RuralNet Logistics aims to create one hundred A-CIGs each with an average of 15 medium sized cages, i.e. having a capacity of about 18,000 fish and thus producing about 340 MT per month or 4,050 MT every year.

  • Who can join?
  • Can groups join?
  • What are the benefits of being in a group?

Potential investors include civil servants and entrepreneurs in Samfya; investors in Lusaka, Copperbelt and other line-of-rail towns; and, Zambians living in diaspora.

The Project will thus encourage those coming forward as a group. Ideally, potential cluster members would have known each other before and have had some relationship that would make it easier for them to coexist in a cluster. 

An Aquaculture Cluster Interest Groups (A-CIG) consists of about 5 investors each owning at least one cage. Each investor is an individual investor who enters a collaborative relationship with the other investors to share resources and collaboratively access needed resources. They will share a workforce of a farm manager, at least two aquaculture technicians and three general workers (including guards).
