Nigeria is currently experiencing an uptick in fish feed production. This is due to a collaborative effort between private companies like Triton and research organizations like the Nigerian Institute for Oceanography (NIOMR), according to the West and Central Africa Council for Agricultural Research and Development (CORAF). CORAF is Africa’s largest sub-regional research organization. It works with 23 African nations to help coordinate agricultural research and development.
