Ghana drafts new aquatic animal health policy
Ghana's ministry of fisheries and aquaculture development is planning a new aquatic animal health policy to help ensure safe fish farming in the country, reports Ghana Web.
One of the proposed policy ideas includes prosecuting operators in the industry who engage in illegal activities such as importing and growing unapproved fish species.
The government will also help farmers acquire permits from aquaculture regulatory agencies and access capital for investment more easily, under a new updated national aquaculture development plan, Ghana Web states.
To help provide dedicated areas for aquaculture, the government is considering implementing zones for aquaculture on the Volta Lake under a West Africa Regional Fisheries Project.
