Première expérience de pisciculture en enclos flottant en lagune en Côte-d'Ivoire et perspectives de développement de cette technique en Afrique tropicale

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Trials were carried out by the C.T.F.T on the breeding of Tilapia nilotica and Clarias in lagoons of low salinity. The initial results obtained in 1977 with 18 cages of capacity 20 cubic metres were encouraging| high production at a satisfactory economic level were achieved in several trials. The work also brought to light various problems which will have to be solved before this new technique becomes widespread. In the present state of affairs, the production of fish in floating cages is still relatively costly operation whose development seems to be assured or recommendable only close to major centres where fish prices are high, or for the production of products for export.
