Aquatic Hub exists to teach skills that would in turn encourage farmers to utilize Good Aquaculture Practices (GAPs) in bridging the gaps in the African aquaculture space. Also, our rich expertise in facilitating Enterprise Development programs has given birth to new SMEs across Nigeria. In so doing, farmers trained will engage in activities that would reduce the supply gap and deficit in consumption of fish in Africa.
We utilize 21st century cutting-edge technology to train women and youths on civic engagement, enterprise development and acquisition of technical skills to ensure Good Aquaculture Practices (GAPs) are utilized in their farms.
