Releasing 8,000 Nila Nirwana Fish Seedlings to Become a New Source of Livelihood in Hapesong Village

Mar 31, 2024

In an effort to create a new source of livelihood or “alternative livelihood” based on local potential, especially freshwater fish commodities, Agincourt Resources conducted a training program on Nila Nirwana fish farming for seven farmers from the Kampung Sukamaju Fishermen Group in Hapesong Baru Village, Batangtoru District. 

Furthermore, on Sunday, March 31, 2024, 8,000 Nila Nirwana fish seeds were released into four ponds of the Kampung Sukamaju Fishermen Group, which had previously been given dolomite lime to neutralize the pH of the pond water. After a harvest period of 3-4 months, the seeds are expected to produce 1,440 kg of fish.
