Timor-Leste's aquaculture sector progresses with third tilapia hatchery inauguration
“In Timor-Leste, the aquaculture sector has progressed well. In the future, it will deliver good results for developing Timor-Leste.”
Former Timor-Leste Prime Minister Taur Matan Ruak spoke at the inauguration event for a new tilapia hatchery in Hera, Dili.
“The government is committed to promote and support this public-private-partnership (PPP) model hatchery to ensure self-resilience and encourage scaling in other areas.”
The hatchery was co-funded by owner Joseph Karimi and the Partnership for Aquaculture Development in Timor-Leste Phase 2 (PATL2) project (2020–2023).
