Pacific’s Chambo Fisheries farm in Malawi

Pacific Limited has launched its fish farm along the Thyolo Road under its subsidiary Chambo Fisheries which is producing about 800 tonnes of fish for sale per annum and expect to produce at least 20 000 per year in the next 25 years.

The compnay’s Chief Executive Officer, Muhammed Ismail Aboo explained that the farm which makes the fish ready after 168 days, has now stared selling out the fish to leading restaurants in town like Superior Halaal as well as Crazy Foods.

“We breed the Tilapia fish –Chambo here and we have started selling it locally to add miscellaneous nutrients to Malawi,” said Aboo.

According to Aboo, the parent fish is initially put under the Bio-Floc Water system whose maximum temperatures are 29 degrees Celsius, under a special kind of heating and lighting.

Then the parents do mate and the eggs are later taken to incubators after three weeks. The incubators separate the eggs until they start turning into small fish for about at least a week

Aboo says that the water system is also very powerful as special machineries are meant to filter any kind of dirt from the water.

The $14 Million (MK 6.9) Billion investment has roped in local labour of about 200 people within the area and the entire country.

A kilogram of fish costs just only MK 2500.

The orders can be made by calling 0212841444

Mr Green Muheya, did you really conduct a proper investigation to this story? I live just very close to that fish farm, which is next to Misesa Cemetery and Misesa Primary school. These guys have been there for close to 10 years now. They had been exporting the fish. They got that land, which was a catchment area, through connections with Atcheya because according Lands Act, one is not supposed to encroach and build structures in wetlands. An example is the structure that was demolished in Lilongwe just within the vicinity of Lilongwe bridge on Likuni roundabout. Muluzi used to… Read more »
