YOPAD SL Ltd, an aquaculture company led by CEO Amb. Benjamin Bockarie, has made a significant breakthrough in the field of regenerative aquaculture in Sierra Leone. The company has successfully developed a least-cost formula for a floating fish feed for both catfish and tilapia farmers in the country.
The announcement of the new locally made commercial floating fish feed is a huge milestone for the aquaculture industry in Sierra Leone. For many years, the unavailability and unaffordability of local fish feed have been a major challenge for fish farmers in the country, hindering the growth and development of the industry.
According to Amb. Benjamin Bockarie, every YPAD product is developed under the management of critical research and science experimentation. This latest breakthrough in the development of a locally made floating fish feed is a testament to the company’s commitment to using science and innovation to drive sustainable and transformative business practices.
The development of a least-cost formula for a floating fish feed is expected to have a significant impact on the aquaculture industry in Sierra Leone. By making locally made commercial floating fish feed available and affordable to farmers, YPAD SL Ltd is helping to improve the total value chain in the country.
This breakthrough is particularly significant as it comes with project support from the Sierra Leone Economic Diversification Project. The support of this project is a testament to the potential impact of the work that YPAD SL Ltd is doing in the field of aquaculture and sustainable business practices.
Amb. Benjamin Bockarie and his team at YPAD SL Ltd are committed to promoting regenerative aquaculture practices in Sierra Leone. They are leading the way in using science and innovation to drive sustainable and transformative business practices in the country. With the development of the locally made commercial floating fish feed, YPAD SL Ltd is paving the way for a more prosperous and sustainable future for the aquaculture industry in Sierra Leone.
