A Joint Venture Agreement between the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (a public entity) and Trimark Aquaculture Centre (a private entity) was signed on 20th August, 2018 to produce African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) from treated wastewater in the Kumasi metropolis. Under this new public-private partnership (PPP) agreement, the public entity amongst other obligations provides the land covering the waste treatment ponds and surroundings for the construction and operation of the aquaculture business. The private entity on the other hand is responsible for all operations, maintenance and management of the aquaculture business (including project facilities) to produce and market at least 6000 kg of fish annually. This Joint Venture Agreement is established out of the CapVal (Creating and Capturing value: supporting Enterprises for Urban Liquid and Solid Waste Recycling for Food, Energy and Clean Environment) project implemented by IWMI in Ghana with funding support from Netherlands Government.
