22/11/2016: ASA/WISHH hosts aquaculture course in Pakistan

According to a recent news article published on the WISHH website, the American Soybean Association’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health program (ASA/WISHH) recently hosted a three day seminar in Pakistan on “Aquaculture and Fish Feed Management”.

Participants in ASA/WISHH’s seminar on Aquaculture and Fish Feed Management visit a fish farm outside of Lahore to see first-hand the results of feeding soy-based fish feed to tilapia.

Part of the USDA-funded FEEDing Pakistan aquaculture project, the course was specifically developed for women studying Fisheries and Aquaculture at the Lahore College for Women University (LCWU).

The seminar, attended by 24 students and university faculty, included visits to feed mills in the country as well as a visit to a local fish farm.

Led by ASA/WISHH Country Representative, R.S.N. Janjua, this study tour marked the first time a group of female Pakistani students were allowed to visit large scale feed mills in the country. 96% of survey respondents reported learning new information about soy and its functional properties in fish feed during the seminar.

This activity was organised with the collaboration of the Zoology Department of LCWU, Zoological Society of LCWU, Society for Promotion of Science and Technology of LCWU, the Small and Medium Enterprise Development Authority (SMEDA), and the Ministry of Industries, Government of Pakistan.
