Hardly a week had elapsed after concluding offering a short course on production of catfish fingering in Dodoma, Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA) swiftly embarked on conducting a subsequent four-day training on tilapia fish farming. This latest training was conducted at the Institute of Continuing Education (ICE), SUA, Morogoro from 7th to 10th October 2019. The course attracted about 30 self-sponsored participants (including five females) coming from Mwanza, Tabora, Dar es Salaam, Iringa, Tanga, Pwani, and Morogoro.
This training on fish farming was offered jointly by the Department of Animal, Aquaculture and Range Sciences and the ICE who have collaborated in conducting four courses in a row, for the year 2019 only. The collaboration of the two units and the coordination role performed by the ICE are creating a pattern for streamlining the undertaking of short courses at SUA consistent to institutional instruments including SUA Outreach Policy, Implementation Strategic Plan for Outreach Policy, and Guidelines for Conducting Outreach Activities at SUA.
