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

    @Gas Machine Head,,,its better that you take your guitars and start singing Achimwene Musalire…..coz what ever you have written here is irrelevant to the article. Catchment area to which dam?

    Usd14million??? K6.9bn? Really? Hope the reporter knows what K7bn can do. Thats an insult to our thinking to make us feel that K7bn can really be invested just on this farm. For your inform, thats equal to the value of MSB!

    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 allow such malpractices take place during his era. Similarly, Muluzi let his crony, late Alfred Upindi start farming maize in the very same illegal wetlands. Now part of the property has seen the construction of a filling station and buildings that house People’s supermarket., Now who owns the properties constructed on the wetlands: John Nthakomwa, husband to late Alfred Upindi’s daughter who also runs Mibawa Cafe and Mibawa Band. Now coming back to the issue of Pacific Fisheries.

    The place is a wetland and there used to be blue-gum trees. You have written the article as if its something new when it is not. Probably what you could have said was that they have now started selling the fish locally. Go there and conduct another proper interview, ask the people who live in the neighbouring areas like Chiwembe or teachers at Misesa Primary school, you will be told the Aboos have been there for sometime and have been exporting fish. Do not tell us as if its a new investment, IT IS NOT.

    Well done Faizal. Wish other entrepreneurs would come with ideas like yours- this country would develop quickly….lets give credit to such people by not being racially reactive

  10. Emmanuel Mwanganda says:

    Well done and keep it up. plan to extend to Lilongwe and Mzuzu.

  11. Chechumu says:

    Mr Aboo, you should buy MALDECO to save it. It is currently in ICU.

    Dr Boo that is what we want in Malawi. Converting something out of nothing for cash. Keep it up.Why you have not provided your physical address as I am unable to connect you on mobile number. Possibly I will just travel from Blantyre to Chigumula and I will find you there as that place is still along the Thyolo Road. Hahaha Malawian reporter, Muheya.

    This is very good. Many Malawians need to learn from this farm. We need to reduce the price of fish in this country so that many people are able eat fish through fish farming.

  16. Andilendile says:

    This is commendable, Mr. Aboo. As an environmentalist, this is what we call sustainable development because the pressure on the local Chambo in the lake will have a substitute. We can pray that the business could be replicated by other investors in Malawi. Keep it up.

    Finally, amwenye opanga zanzeru! Keep it up!
