By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Agriculture Food Security, and Enterprise’ (MAFSE) Aquaculture Unit on Friday facilitated a tilapia care and maintenance workshop for teachers and students at Belize High School of Agriculture (BHSA) in San Lazaro, Orange Walk.

“Today was an amazing experience,” the BHSA said on Friday in a social media post.

“Thanks to Mr Bol and Mr Sosa for delivering such rich and extensive information we definitely learnt a lot.”

The workshop was facilitated by Agriculture Aquaculture Coordinator Miguel Sosa and extension officer Neri Bol.

The BHSA announced in May that the school is introducing Tilapia Farming to its curriculum for the next academic year.

“Students will be actively engaged in the process of maintaining and growing tilapia as an extra source of food security,” the BHSA said in a social media post.

“This will involve training and acquiring knowledge in the rearing of tilapia in a controlled environment. It will include pond management such as pH control, oxygenation, feeding and harvesting techniques.”

At the time the BHSA was already preparing for three ponds that would be donated to the school by Belize Marketing and Development Corporation. The BMDC delivered the three tilapia ponds in the first week in June.

“The 3 ponds will be used by the school as it ventures into aquaculture in the coming semester, as part of its push to ensure students get an agriculture education that includes sustainable, climate smart agricultural practices,” the Ministry of Agriculture Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE) said.

“The ponds cost approximately BZD 25,000.00.”

MAFSE said the Aquaculture Unit headquartered in Central Farm, Cayo District, will provide fingerlings for the pond and training on how to raise them. Now they are delivering that promise.

“Students will be actively engaged in the process of maintaining and growing tilapia as an extra source of food security,” the BHSA said in a social media post.

“This will involve training and acquiring knowledge in the rearing of tilapia in a controlled environment.”

The BHSA said it is committed to promoting, expanding, and developing Agriculture education in their community and Belize.
