tilapia jDozens of local investors in the South Dayi Tilapia project have visited the project site in the South Dayi District in the Volta Region to ascertain the progress of the project.

The tilapia production project, which is a partnership between Safeway Estates and the South Dayi District Assembly, is being undertaking with financial contributions from individuals and groups.

The visit, which enabled the investors to familiarise themselves with operations at the site, followed speculations that the project was failing, heightening fears over the fate of their investments.

Contrary to the speculations, the contributors found that the project, which is one of the largest fish farms in Africa, was progressing well.

Among other things, the investors were educated on the breeding, feeding and harvesting processes.

Some of them were happy about the management of the project, and urged the management to continue working to ensure that the desired dividends were derived from the project.

They also urged the management to periodically provide them with information to enable the investor to be abreast of the progress of the project.

Richard Swanzy Owusu, Agro Manager for Safeway Tilapia Farms, addressing the stakeholders, assured quality management of their investment, adding that “your investment is secured”.

He said management would provide regular updates about progress of the project, and hinted that the next payment of dividends would be done at the end of this month.

He commended the investors for visiting the project site, saying it was indicative of their commitment towards the success of the project.
