The proposed project titled “Innovations and Markets for Lake Victoria Fisheries” (IMLAF) is carried out in the Lake Victoria basin of Tanzania. Its main objective is to catalyze socio-economic growth through expansion of markets for Nile perch and sardine quality products and employment opportunities. It involves application of innovative methods of production of safe and high quality Nile perch and sardine fish products and by-products products for the local, regional and international markets. Post-harvest losses and presence of biological, physical and chemical hazards that reduce the quality, safety and marketability of fish and fish products are addressed. Value addition and development of new processed products and byproducts from the Nile perch and sardines as well as new business models are being investigated and provided to end-users.
