The Problem

My students have not only created a lab that supplies food to my Omaha shelters and food pantries but has been to represent Nebraska in North Central Regional Aquaculture for the USDA 12 state region. During our work with Grades of Green we had the pleasure of working with St Rosa College in Uganda. Since September we have been sharing with Grades of Green our work in operating a state licensed tilapia fishery that produces food fish managed and operated by students in the area. Our goal is to assist St Rosa in developing their own unique program to help create more food security by creating a fishery with local materials and environmentally approach to gain food fish to breed for the local area.

Our Plan

The first part of the part has been sent to be peer reviewed by Metropolitan Community College Horticulture and University of Nebraska at Kearney Biology Department to see our rough draft using concrete to create an evaluated pond in the area. Once approved working with St Rosa to find live food fish in the area to stock the pond. We will then work on breed techniques we use in our state lab to breed tilapia to teach students at this college how we created this food network.
