Federal University of Agiculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB)  In A Bid To Empower/Trains Female Farmers On Fish Production






The Institute of Food Security, Environmental Resources and Agricultural Research (IFSERAR), Federal University of Agiculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), in a bid to empower women in fishery production, has organised a five-day training workshop on “Aquaculture and Fisheries Production, Management, Processing and Value Addition”, in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, and a group, Growing Girls and Women in Nigeria.

Declaring the workshop open, the Vice-Chancellor and President of Association of African Universities, Prof. Olusola Oyewole, appreciated the collaborators in organising the programme, in an effort to increase food production, create employment and reduce poverty.

He congratulated the participants for being part of the maiden and specialised training programme, exclusively designed for women.

He added that fishery production was an important aspect of the nation’s agricultural development because of its huge consumption, by virtually every segment of the country.

Prof. Oyewole said FUNAAB had played a significant role in the development of fisheries sector over the years, particularly in South-West in the areas of fingerlings, brood stock production and distribution under the West African Agricultural Productivity Programme (WAAPP) in the last 12 months.

The Director of IFSERAR, Professor Akin Omotayo, while welcoming participants, said the training had been structured in such a way as to make a layman to understand it, as there would be practical sessions outside the classrooms to enable participants gain more knowledge.

He advised the participants who came from different states such as Kwara, Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Oyo and Ogun state, to take the advantage of the programme, to acquire more knowledge on fingerlings production.
