Cage aquaculture in Lake Volta, Ghana. Guidelines for a sustainable future

Asmah R, Karikari A, Falconer L, Telfer T & Ross L (2016) Cage aquaculture in Lake Volta, Ghana. Guidelines for a sustainable future. The Leverhulme Trust. Royal Society, Stirling. University of Stirling.

This book describes the approach, work undertaken and key outcomes of a three-year project which commenced in December 2012. The project was based on collaboration between the Institute of Aquaculture, University of Stirling, UK, and the CSIR Water Research Institute, Accra, Ghana. It was funded by the Leverhulme Foundation through a Royal Society Africa Grant. 

Our key objective was to build capacity in environmental monitoring and assessment in partner organisations and, from the work carried out, to formulate a plan for improved and sustainable cage aquaculture on Lake Volta, so contributing to the developing industry and assuring regional food security.
