Tilapia better management practices in local language: Inshila Ishisuma Isha Ukutungulwilamo Ba Kasunga Uwa Isabi Banono Mu Zambia

Better Management Practices (BMPs) (in Bemba, a local Zambian language) for small-holder farming tilapia (GIFT) in pond-based systems in Zambia were developed based on learning from farmers’ field schools (FFSs) and demonstration ponds, including empirical evidences from elsewhere. A BMPs manual was published to provide guidelines for sustainable intensification of tilapia production systems in Zambia and to serve as a handbook for aquaculture technicians/practitioners from different stakeholders such as I/NGOs and private sectors.
