This fully integrated farm is located in Kuje, an urban area near Abuja, Nigeria. There were major challenges that the BioFishency team faced with this installation (and other installations in Africa):
- Remote areas are distant from existing utility infrastructure (water/electricity)
- Frequent power failures require a plan/design that included several backups
- Irregular transportation schedules affect deliveries and shipping
- Local farmers/growers lack technical know-how
Another challenge was implementing a Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) for tilapia in a country that consumes and grows mainly African catfish.
