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

Horizon procures feed in bulk from Aller Aqua Zambia, including Aller Til-Pro Supplement, a feed for small-scale “greenwater” fish farmers.

Aller Aqua Zambia operates sub-Saharan Africa’s largest and most technologically advanced aquafeed factory.

tilapia FIngerlings

Horizon procures and retails mono-sex Oreochromis niloticus fingerlings from Yalelo Zambia, which operates sub-Saharan Africa’s largest commercial hatchery.

Fingerlings can be transported to the customer’s farm at an additional cost.

fish farming equipment

Horizon is the exclusive distributor in Southern Africa of AKVA, Europe’s leading manufacturer of fish farming equipment.
