Fostering sustainable and inclusive fish production
Chonona produces and markets diverse fish products from their aquaculture farm, such as table size fish for direct consumption and fingerlings (young fish) for production. The enterprise builds on strong community involvement and local business relations, by locally sourcing farm inputs. The company also provides its local partners with training on aquaculture production.
Chonona promotes sustainable fish farming practices and integrates livestock and horticulture into its production cycle. Furthermore, the enterprise works to diversify its revenues by developing new products and alternative income sources, such as eco-tourism and consultancy services.
Chonona Aquaculture runs the production, distribution, marketing and sales of fish products and coordinates the overall business development.
Aquaculture Enterprise Project provides contacts to business partners and small-scale fish farmers and producers of high-quality fingerlings.
Umodzi Consulting supports Chonona in its business development and supports the development of training.
Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources develops and provides Chonona with new technologies in fish production, processing and marketing.
