GHANA – The Chairman of the Tarkwa-Nsuaem Aquaculture Association, Mr Yusif Adu-Mensah, has appealed to unemployed graduates in the country to go into aquaculture.
He said fish farming is lucrative in the Tarkwa-Nsuaem Municipality and assured the youths who desire to go into it that they would be supported to succeed.
Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Takoradi, Mr Adu-Mensah said that the youth of the country needed to re-orient their mind-set that the government has to employ them after school.
“It is time the youth in this country take their destiny into their own hands and create jobs for themselves instead of relying on white-colour jobs that are not readily available these days,” he said.
He said that in view of poor catch in recent times by fishermen because of illegal fishing practices, it would be prudent and beneficial for the youths to go into fish farming.
