- Identify, quantify and collect potential local products and byproducts for aquatic feeds development in American Samoa and dry samples for shipment to the Oceanic Institute (OI)for compositional analysis.
- Analyze the nutrient composition of selected samples.
- Compile a feed manual containing analyzed nutrition composition data for locally available ingredients and byproducts; formulated diets for Tilapia using the local ingredients; established feed processing methods and quality control tests and obtained their availability, quantity and price.
- Transfer of technology and dissemination of information will be achieved through a workshop and feed manual hand-outs to local producers and farmers.
