Horizon Aquaculture is a social enterprise that provides aquaculture inputs to small and medium-sized fish farmers in peri-urban and rural areas. The company focuses on providing sustainable, market-based solutions to barriers that inhibit the growth of the broader aquaculture industry in Zambia.
Horizon’s mission is to provide a one-stop solution across the entire value chain, providing: feed, fingerlings, equipment, microfinance, technical assistance, and access to markets for all fish farmers.
In Sub-Saharan Africa, commercial aquaculture makes up less than 10% of total fish production, and the vast majority comes from small-scale farming operations. Demand for fish cannot be met by commercial production alone, especially in rural and peri-urban areas where residents are particularly at risk for malnutrition because of the shortage of affordable protein.
High quality fish feed
Aller Aqua Zambia operates sub-Saharan Africa’s largest and most technologically advanced aquafeed factory.
Fingerlings can be transported to the customer’s farm at an additional cost.
