  • Claies surélevées pour sécher le poisson réduisent les pertes après-capture au Burundi

    L'Organisation des Nations Unies pour l'alimentation et l'agriculture (FAO), la Direction des pêches au Burundi, ainsi que de nombreux pêcheurs provenant du lac Tanganyika au Burundi, ont coopéré avec succès pour réaliser un projet intitulé: Appui à la technologie post-capture de poisson.  Le projet a contribué à la mise en place d'un nouveau système favorisant l'utilisation des claies surélevées pour sécher le poisson, permettant ainsi la réduction des pertes après-capture et l'amélioration des méthodes de manutention et de traitement.  Le projet a été un tel succès, qu'il a été reproduit dans de nombreux sites de pêche à travers le pays.  Cette vidéo a donc été conçue afin de diffuser l'initiative et de permettre aux communautés de pêcheurs de s'en inspirer.  Pour obtenir plus d'information, veuillez visiter la page suivante: http://www.fao.org/in-action/simple-fish-drying-racks-improve-livelihoods-and-nutrition-in-burundi/fr/

  • Raised Drying Racks Improve Fishing Livelihood in Burundi

    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Burundi Fisheries Directory, along with the many fishermen and women of Lake Tanganyika in Burundi have successfully cooperated to carry out a project entitled "Support to Post-Harvest Fisheries Technology".  The project aided in the establishment of a new system which uses raised-racks to dry fish, reducing previously experienced harvest losses and impoving fish processing methods.  The project was applauded, information on the initiative was shared and it was consequently duplicated along other fishing sites in the area.  It was decided to make this film to help share impact and inspire further replication.  More information on the initiative can be found at: http://www.fao.org/in-action/simple-fish-drying-racks-improve-livelihoods-and-nutrition-in-burundi/en/
