Training for Rwanda

Rwandan trainees during the demonstration on assembling floaters for net cages and pens A two-phase training course on freshwater aquaculture was conducted by AQD's Binangonan Freshwater Station (BFS) for ten staff members of the Rwanda Workforce Development Authority (RWDA) from May 7 to June 19, 2009.

The training course was commissioned by the Singapore-based Acrux Stella Education Group Pte. Ltd. (ASEG) which handles projects in Rwanda.

While the training covered four commercially important tropical species, emphasis during field/farm visits was given to tilapia and catfish which are common to both Asia and Africa.

The first phase of the training course was a three-week skills training in Freshwater fish breeding and farming, while the second phase was Industry immersion training involving three weeks of internship training on freshwater fish hatchery and lake-based pen/cage farming operations.

Phase 1 of the training consisted mainly of lecture and practical sessions on basic and advanced technologies in broodstock development, hatchery and grow-out, and management of freshwater fish/crustacean species.

Apart from the sessions held in BFS, the participants were also taken on field trips to visit tilapia science center facilities in Muñoz, Nueva Ecija, Taal Lake for tilapia cage culture, and catfish ponds in Bulacan.

Phase 2 was conducted at several farm sites owned by Concord Aquaculture of the Frabelle Fishing Corporation where the trainees learned milkfish cage/pen operations, carp hatchery operations, fish transport, and fish processing.

As requested by ASEG Director Mr. Bruno Lee, the training course aimed to raise the overall knowledge of the RWDA staff in freshwater aquaculture in order to increase the productivity of fish farming in freshwater lakes in Rwanda.

It has an all-black black (matte) external casing, comprehensive
with a pop-up flash on the best. Mega pixels are how manufacturers measure
the pixel count of an image created by a camera. This lets you manage exactly how wide the camera
shutter opens and the remaining settings are governed automatically
to provide you with an excellent picture.

Both drugs have also been denied FDA approval the first time around and
are awaiting news on their second attempt. Anyone who dares to make
a closer inspection will find the underlying difference.
Do not be tempted to lose weight as quickly as you can, because a crash diet will have
you eating less than a thousand calories a day slowing down your metabolism.

For any kind of luxury item of consumption, MAD (Money,
Authority and Desire) is required. Regular workshops ensure
that the staff at PVM Radio subdivision is not only up to date with the latest
technological innovations, but also ensures that the customers
from diverse backgrounds are offered the best possible services to suit their tastes.
But mostly BBC Radios 4 and 5 because, being speech orientated,
they're more like what I do, so I can learn lots from them.
