PERMANENT SECRETARY, MS ULITALA HIVELUAH ON INLAND AQUACULTURE

PERMANENNT SECRETARY, MS. ULITALA HIVELUA WITH MR. BURGER (DEP.DIR: INLAND AQUACULTURE)

Mr. Burger, the newly appointed Deputy Director for Inland Aquaculture met with the PS, Ms. Ulitala Hivelua of the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources and other staff at the Windhoek office.

Ms. Huvelua has a passion for Inland Fisheries and  Inland Aquaculture. She is very proud of the achievements of the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources with regard to Inland Aquaculture. The establishment of Kamutjonga Inland Fisheries Institute (KIFI) is an achievement that she is very proud of. She wants maintenance of these infrastructure to be a  high priority and it must be be reflected on the maintenance budget.

Communities and farmers involved with Inland fisheries must continue to benefit from demand driven research, training and outreach in the form of extension activities conducted at all the Inland Fisheries institutions. The reactivation of a multi stakeholder participatory scientific forum is needed to guide the direction of research in order to effectively deal with the production problems of the tilapia and catfish currently produced.  

She welcomed Mr. Burger to the fisheries family and expressed the hope that he will enjoy his stay at Kamutjonga Inland Fisheries Institute
