Onenoa Eel and Tilapia Farm
Fish have traditionally been a major part of the diet of the Samoan people. Historically, the reef around the island has provided a substantial portion of this aquatic portion of the diet. Rapid increase in the population of Samoa has overtaxed this resource. This project proposes to address this need by providing tilapia fish and fresh-water eels to the Samoan, Korean, and Filipino communities. This is a pilot project built on an existing facility to create a fully commercial fish and eel production area with primary and secondary processing through fresh and smoked produce.
