Value Chain Market Traders and Procurement Officers (Nationwide Recruitment)

At Superior Raceway Systems Limited, we see freshwater fish farms as a better way to help fight hunger and bolster food security. We focus on improving aquaculture on land-based ponds to help meet the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.

We are currently implementing a low-cost, sustainable aquaculture value chain in Ghana which is empowering 10,000 farmers.

These farmers are growing catfish and tilapia in land-based raceway ponds while using the waste-water from the fish ponds to drip irrigate soybeans, maize, sorghum, cocoa, pineapple, onions, sugarcane, plantain, banana, palm, tomatoes, rice, cassava, yam and vegetables.

Freshwater aquaculture has grown steadily over the past three decades. Asia is at the center of this boom, accounting for 89% of world aquaculture production..

The most important species – carp, tilapia and catfish – are herbivorous or omnivorous, so they do not need to eat animal protein to thrive. While they may be fed small amounts of fish to speed growth, their mainstay diet consists of inexpensive byproducts of crops like rice, groundnut and soy, as well as natural plankton.

It is relatively cheap and easy to grow freshwater fish in small raceway ponds.

Aquaculture is on the way to becoming an economic boom in Africa, providing quality high-paid jobs and incomes for vast numbers of family farms, workers and businesses. Farmed freshwater fish tends to be an affordable staple food for millions of low and middle-income consumers – and many better-off ones, too.
