The project trained 29 fish farmers and 4 district fisheries officers on feed formulation and pond management. The project featured in the Jarida Maridhawa programme which was organized by another COSTECH funded project . The results of the study were also presented at the COSTECH Annual Technology and Innovation Conference 2015
TAFIRI Kigoma Centre is currently collaborating with the University of Aarhus (Denmark), Illinois State University (USA), University of Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) and Enavigo Consult a/s (Denmark) in a project called CLEAT to monitor and profile climate impacts to the lake hydrodynamics and fisheries production.
TAFIRI Kigoma is also collaborating with the Nanjing Institute of Geography and Limnology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (NIGLAS) to execute a lake water quality monitoring program.
TAFIRI Kigoma is collaborating with MATIS Iceland to reduce greenhouse gases emissions and deforestation by advocating the use of energy efficient combined solar dryer and smoker for processing fishes in the lake thereby reducing post-harvest loss and adding value to the fish products.
TAFIRI Kigoma Centre is working with the Nature Conservancy through their flagship program in the Lake Tanganyika basin, the TNC Tuungane Project.
