Chinese-owned company plans to produce tilapia in Angola

19 September 2017

Chinese state-owned company RSI Su, Lda is building 200 tilapia tanks in the Barra do Dande district of Angola’s Bengo province, the company’s spokesperson told Angolan news agency Angop.

Pedro Panzo also said that this project represents an investment of US$1 million and the production will be sold both in the province and in other parts of Angola.

The spokesman said that the company had already purchased enough fish food to launch the business, which requires tank construction to be completed, but it plans to produce fish food locally at a later date.

Tilapia is the name given to various species of freshwater fish, which are naturally occuring in Africa and are now produced in many places in South America and southern North America. (macauhub)
