Fish farming is clearly on the increase. Here we see a set of fish farm nets being set up on the shores of a small village along the Afram Leg of the Lake Volta. As the nets increase, apparently exponentially, around the lake we must consider the effects on rural communities. Fish farming is expensive, and failure to provide sufficient, appropriate food and care for the fish may result in a negative return on investment. Is there sufficient education about fish farming, and the relevant approvals for such activities, to make it a sensible investment, especially for those who appear to be putting their entire life's savings and efforts into such activities?
