Norges Vel-breakfast: Sustainable fish farming is becoming more important in a world characterized by climate change and an increasing need for food production. Fish farming provide more nutritious food, new jobs and local economic growth. Friday, March 15, we welcome you to our breakfast seminar at Bruket in Oslo. Sign up by March 12.
In Madagascar, Mozambique and Tanzania, Norges Vel contributes to developing sustainable businesses for fish farming. Here, small-scale farmers receive training and expertise in fish farming and business development. By working in all relevant parts of the value chain, we achieve a profitable and sustainable model. In this value chain Norges Vel and our local partners take control of all aspects - from fish production to market delivery. The values created locally remain local. Find out more by participating.
