Shiblee Hatchery & Farms Cage-culture Fish Farming, Bangladesh

In this project, Shiblee Hatchery & Farms Ltd. aims to engage 100 landless families as fish farmers of cage-cultured tilapia, along the banks of the Adhamanki River. In addition to cultivating fish, livestock and vegetables on its farm in Kuakata, Shiblee also runs a supply network, delivering chemical-free fish and meat products to high-end clients in Dhaka.
