Empowering Cameroon’s fish farmers: Aller Aqua and MAVECAM partner for successful seminars – As a testament to our commitment and dedication to the aquaculture industry worldwide in general and Cameroon in particular. Aller Aqua A/S in collaboration with Mavecam, our renowned partner in Cameroon, recently organised two highly successful seminars which brought together more than 130 enthusiastic customers over two days.
The events, which took place in Douala, the economic capital, and Yaoundé, the political capital, attracted customers keen to learn more and develop their farming businesses.
These seminars offered a unique platform for our customers to provide honest feedback, enabling us to better understand their needs. The interactive sessions fostered a sense of community and trust with customers, as participants shared their challenges and experiences. It was an opportunity to build lasting relationships, strengthen existing partnerships and forge new ones with our fish farmers. Aller Aqua and MAVECAM saw it as an opportunity to gain valuable information to improve our customer following, our innovation and knowledge sharing with local fish farmers, and our innovation and knowledge sharing with local farmers.
The presentations to fish farmers focused on better use of Aller Aqua feed and good biosecurity practices to optimise the performance of their fish farms by improving profitability and ensuring sustainable growth. In addition, we shared guidelines for making sound economic decisions on the farm, empowering our customers to manage their farms with confidence and clarity. The partnership with MAVECAM is highlighted by their unwavering commitment to improving the customer experience and providing seamless delivery logistics to local fish farmers and new entrants alike. In addition to the best methods of applying feed in fish farming, the seminars also highlighted the importance of farm biosecurity. We provided participants with valuable information and practical guidelines for implementing biosecurity on their farms.
Recognising the importance of continuous learning, Aller Aqua and MAVECAM provided participants with the branded tools needed to improve their technical operations. Participants were also rewarded with prizes for their active participation and los of the Q&A session.
“The seminar was truly memorable as our learning was infused with excitement and fun,” says Vasthi, a young fish farmer. “We learned many improvements for our fish farming business and received many technical tools and gifts. Going Aqua has created a sense of collaboration between us, encouraging us to learn from each other and collectively improve the fish farming industry in Cameroon,”
“The energy and enthusiasm that permeated each session was simply infectious. At the end of the seminars, there was a palpable sense of inspiration. Our customers left with a renewed sense of motivation and valuable information to propel their fish farming business forward,”
says Dr Joel Koulou, Aller Aqua’s Cameroon Sales Manager.
“The success of the Douala and Yaoundé seminars demonstrates the importance of collaboration, knowledge sharing and continuous improvement for fish farmers.

As partners, we share a common vision of a thriving and sustainable aquaculture industry in Cameroon,”
