The Competition is sponsored by the Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Skretting, Unga Feed Factory, Lattice Aqua, Larive International and Kamuthanga Fish Farm.

The Aquaculture Academy is the first professional & practical training platform for aquaculture in Eastern Africa. The Aquaculture Academy is founded by the partners of the FoodTechAfrica consortium. With plenty of experience in the aquaculture sector, the consortium partners have identified the lack of practical skills as the key deterrent for profitable and sustainable aquaculture farming in East Africa. The Aquaculture Academy aims to train and build ‘aquapreneurs’ who can run a sustainable and profitable business, inspire others to become fish farmers, and spur economic prosperity throughout the sector. Launching in early 2021, the AA will position itself as the preferred aquaculture learning institution in the region.
