ACDI/VOCA is currently seeking a Freshwater Prawn Expert for an upcoming consulting assignment in Uzbekistan. A local partner has asked the Agribusiness Development Activity for support in expanding into Freshwater Prawn. The local partner has 20 hectars of articial ponds where carp fish are commercially grown and now plan to introduce the freshwater prawn production to his business. The company has constructed an indoor facility to set up a prawn hatchery and brood stock maintenance. Additionally, the partner has already imported brood stock prawn and are hatching the prawns on a trial basis. To support this expansion effort, the Agribusiness Development Activity wants the selected expert to conduct a feasibility study on commercial freshwater prawn breeding in Uzbekistan.
