Millennium Fellowship Project: Clean oceans healthy fish
Recently in some parts of the fishing community in Ghana, among fish farmers, there has been a great deal of issues relating to the health of fish.
This problem leads to farmers applying chemicals to water for fishing causing the death of large number of fishes and also other causing water pollution. Also zoo- and phytoplankton are destroyed causing threat to aquatic life. Thus, this project seeks to reduce the rate of pollution and minimize diseases affecting fish life either in pond, ocean or fresh water. First, Davida would visit fishing community within the stipulated time, educate them on the need to use appropriate mechanics for fishing and desist from activities causing water pollution. Also she is going to create an application software where information about fish feed and fish health will be uploaded. Finally platforms will be created to be able to interact with all fish farmers.
