Fish farms are developing rapidly in Uganda. Statistics show that an increasing number of fishermen began to produce their own fish feed. Fisheries contribute 20% of the total agricultural output and 5% to Gross Domestic Product. The Uganda Government has prioritized increasing the quantity of fish produced by 300,000 tonnes (wild caught and fish farm produce) in the next few years and is aiming at increasing revenue from fisheries to $1b, from the current $110m.
On 1st Nov. 2015, our fish feed extruders were sent to Entebbe, Uganda. This floating fish feed pellet mill is widely used to extrude grains into high-grade aquatic feed pellets for fish, catfish, shrimps, crabs, etc., and is mainly applied in small and medium size pellet production. Raw materials for the fish feed extruder can be corn, wheat, soybean, grain, bone powder, etc. Sinking and floating aqua-feed pellets both can be made just by adjusting feed formulation.
Workers are loading the fish feed extruder:
