Chobe Bream - Botswana Aquaculture

Chobe Bream is an African aquaculture project situated on the banks of the Chobe River between Kazangula and Kasane in Botswana. The project produces the indigenous Oreochromis Andersonii with a production capacity of 35 000 fish per month.

Aquaculture or fish farming has become one of the fastest growing sectors of the food industries worldwide. Global demand for food, specifically protein, is rising rapidly and this project seeks to supply this demand through an intensive recirculating system allowing for reduced water use and energy consumption. The system also better control on environmental factors such as water quality, water temperature, waste disposal.
