The students also went for a field visit to Katima Mulilo on 26 June 2013. The purpose was to familiarize themselves with  aquaculture and fishing activities in that region.  They visited Likunganelo fish farm, which is a cooperative fish farm run by community members supported by the MFMR  in terms of inputs and skills development. It is an integrated farm where fish, crops and livestock are produced with the purpose to improve production and sustainability.
