Victoria de Barros Neto launched this challenge when attending an official launching of the 1st stone of the project to build the Tílapia Larviculture Center in the commune of Missombo, 18 kilometers south of Menongue city.

The official said that, in order to promote aquaculture, and with priority given to family, the Ministry was engaged in a concerted effort with the provincial governments, not only to build support infrastructures capable of facilitating and creating the conditions to develop communal aquaculture and provide other incentives.
