Presented By: Bill Mebane
Event: ECHO International Agriculture Conference 2012 Presentation (2012-12-20)
The farming of fish is one of the fastest growing agricultural industries in the world for a simple reason - a lot of protein can be produced on relatively small plots of land. This talk will describe various methods of maximizing the production of fish (tilapia) using minimal resources and available infrastructure.
Presenter : William N. Mebane During the past 25+ years Bill has been "immersed" in the farming of fish, primarily commercial food fish
production and the culture of aquatic organisms for research. In 2002 he made the decision to focus his efforts to help "nutritionally challenged" areas of the world learn to produce fish to help feed themselves. Haiti is where this journey began and continues today; however the techniques are transferable to similar latitudes.
