Comments from broadcasters using RIUradio material through Agfax
- Volta Star Radio, Ghana
'Fish farming really needs to be encouraged to increase our nutritional needs.
- NAIS, Zambia
'Very good material for small scale fish farmers. I think authorities in Malawi should consider fishing ban during fish breeding period and see how farmers will react to fish farming.'
- Green Care Association, Cameroon
'I remain excited to learn that it's possible to produce high quality fingerlings and also the putting to use of floating nets (Hapas). It's my first time to hear of such a facility.'
- Nakaseke Community Radio, Uganda
'It was a good programme. Unfortunately many of the fish growing farmers pulled out of the business because of several challenges involved like diseases and theft.'
- Radio West, Uganda
'Most of our lakes experience the need to grow fish for better business.'
- Namibian Broadcasting Corporation
'The material was used in June 2010 and was interesting.'
- Zodiak Broadcasting Station, Malawi
'I received at least two calls from people asking for contacts for Research Into Use. Currently I am planning to develop the story further into one of our weekly special reports by conducting interviews in the local language and talking to some fish farmers. This story fell short of the farmer voice.'
