Opportunities and challenges for small-scale aquaculture in Zambia

This study, funded by the German government and in partnership with an international research institute as well as the government department responsible for fish farming in Zambia, collected quantitative and qualitative data that aimed to provide a holistic view of the livelihoods of smallholder fish farmers in the country. A total of 151 fish farming households were surveyed and an additional 46 qualitative interviews were collected with a selected variety of fish farmers. The results were disseminated to Zambian stakeholders at a seminar in Lusaka in October 2018, and presented again at Humboldt University in Berlin and again at the GIZ Head Office in Eschborn in November.
