Mr Nosakhare, an indigene of Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Area of Edo State, said he was inspired to initiate and execute the project by the number of inhabitants of Potiskum and environs who have interest in fish farming but hardly have access to fingerlings or fry to breed.

A graduate of Agricultural Science from the University of Benin said as a corps member attached to the Potiskum Zonal office of the Yobe State Ministry of Animal and Fisheries Development, he came across many interested fish farmers who decried the losses they have recorded as a result of lack of experience in fish farming and the troubles of travelling far to get the fingerlings.

 He said his effort was made possible through the assistance of two veterinary doctors in the Zonal office, Dr Ahmed Ibrahim Baba (the Ag. Potiskum Zonal Veterinary Officer) and Dr Awal Danladi (Fune Area Veterinary Officer), the hatchery has already begun to alleviate the sufferings of the fish farmers by bringing fingerlings and fry to their doorsteps.

Mr Nosakhare said he had also trained 18 students of the Yobe State College of Agriculture, Gujba, who were in his place of primary assignment on industrial attachment.
