Churches are keen to find revenues to employ ministers to support their Christian faith in their villages. They have wondered about fish farming as a small business option.
Recently Golden Oldies were introduced to a NZ-born Marine Biologist who has lived in Fiji for 25-years. His passion? Developing fish farms for villages.
A Golden Oldies couple recently spent an afternoon with him and were intrigued to learn that by just looking at a pond and its ‘depth of green’ it can tell how much food there is in the water for fish to eat!
Now Golden Oldies are planning to further research this project and develop a ‘Research Pond’ to learn the fish farming skills that can then be taught to other Fijians in their villages to help them generate funds to employ Church ministers.
