Sunday, April 19th 2015.Juan Caal Reporting: A short ceremony was held yesterday afternoon to inaugurate a Tilapia farm at the Toledo Christian Academy (TCA) in the Toledo District.
TCA is one of the first Schools in the Toledo District to own and manage a Tilapia farm, and according to Principal Mr. Emerson Mangar, the farm contains more than 4,500 young tilapias that will be grown with the help of students and staff.
“The first persons to eat tilapias will be students and staff while the rest will be available for sale,” says Mangar who believes that this initiative will enhance the financial sustainability of the school.
“The staff and students will be responsible to manage and maintain the tilapia ponds. We look forward to making this project a successful one and as we go along, we will be adopting ideas on how to run this initiative more effective and efficient,” said Principal Mangar.
The Toledo Christian Academy is the first primary school that owns a Tilapia farm.
