Efforts to transform fish silage into animal feed for rabbits, pigs, and chickens are showing positive signs as farmers report good results in their animals.

This was one of the main areas discussed when a team from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) toured the Bridgetown Fisheries Complex and Fisheries Division on Monday.

The team included the FAO Director General and the Sub-Regional Coordinator, Dr. Renata Clarke and the Minister of the Environment and National Beautification, with responsibility for the Blue and Green Economy, Adrian Forde.

After the tour, the delegation met and discussed the state of the fish silage pilot project in Barbados.

During that meeting, Minister Forde said the transformation of fish silage to animal feed formed part of the circular economy and the sustainable development of fisherfolk.
