Workshop participant catching tilapia during aquaponic training in Antigua
A technical training workshop on advancing aquaponics was held in Saint John’s, Antigua and Barbuda, in the period 14–18 August 2017. Fourteen international participants were present from five countries (Antigua and Barbuda, the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, Barbados, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis). The workshop was an activity organized under the Technical Cooperation Project (TCP/SLC/3601) Towards a Caribbean Blue Revolution. The five-day workshop was convened by FAO and consisted of lectures, demonstrations and hands-on activities supported by aquaponics experts from Indies Greens, a commercial aquaponic farm located in Upper Renfrew, Antigua that doubles as a teaching and demonstration system, and was supported by FAO technical officers and aquaponics consultants.
