2. Outreach/Technology Transfer: To train the local workforce on feeds and fish production.
3. Marine Aquaculture Technology Development: To conduct two (2) fish density trials to establish the most optimal and economical cage culture grow-out requirements for Moi.
4. Outreach/Technology Transfer: To train the local workforce on feeds and fish production.
