The first part of BOMOSA cage fish farming techniques in East Africa was dealt with last week. In this second and concluding part, OLUKAYODE OYELEYE examined a critical component of the project, which also has implications for elsewhere in Africa, including Nigeria. This part deals essentially with feedstuffs, how the East African countries involved in the Bomosa project have fared and how they hope to cope in the future.In Bomosa, failure appears never to be a final word. Promoters of the project also appear keen on finding local solution to their local problems. In trying to find cheap and locally available feeds for their fish, they have embarked on some studies, trials and have recorded some useful findings in some and in some others their efforts did not seem to have resulted in rewarding findings. However, even where trials have not succeeded in positive findings, the results nonetheless will help in the future to rule out some options that may not yield positive findings if future researchers ever think of venturing there. They seem to have laid good foundations for the emerging fisheries sector through research based on sound science, economics and prevailing sociology.
