First Catfish Farming
Collaborating with Department of Maritime and Fisheries Affair of West Aceh, PT Mifa Bersaudara, one of PT ABM Investama Tbk’s subsidiaries, developed how to maintain Sangkuriang Catfish distributed by Kelompok Usaha Bersama (KUB) Ule Bak Nyangpa-Gampong Langung, Mereubo,West Aceh and had their first harvest in at 20 December 2013. From the 10.000 catfish seeds have been given, they could produce apporximately 228 kg.
In the future, hopefully this group could do spawning on their own and be independent, because until now they still depends on the third party who supply the catfish seeds. If they could succesfully spawn the catfish seeds it guarantee that they could sustain their effort and the empty pond will be fully loaded in no time.
KUB Ule Bak Nyangpa-Gampong Langung is ready to be an example for other catfish farmers in West Aceh. KUB Ule Bak Nyangpa established in 2012, consists 15 member. PT Mifa Bersaudara started to help them in 2013.
