Such development presents a series of challenges for the local aquaculture industry on the African continent. Constant availability, economic conversion rate, high and constant quality, education and local presence as well as collaboration are just a few of the main challenges Aller Aqua addresses in the individual markets, and which are the fundamentals behind our strategy and business structure in Africa.

This will increase Aller Aqua Groups presence and commitment to the aquaculture value chain on the African continent.
