Safina Musa

She has been working in the sphere of aquaculture for a long time. She is a trained Senior Manager (Senior Management Course) in Kenya School of Government, Mombasa.  She has published more than 30 papers, 7 books and book chapters in SCI-indexed journals of aquatic sciences research. 

I am currently working on four projects: 

  • Mixed feeding schedule of low and high frequency in the diet of Nile tilapia (Orechromis niloticus) fingerlings: effect on growth performance, body composition and haemato-immunological, stress responses and economics in low input ponds. The research is funded by GRO Fisheries Training Programme, a UNESCO Category 2 Centre in Iceland 
  • Impact of Nile tilapia Cage Culture on Water and Bottom Sediment Quality: The ability of a Eutrophic Lake to Absorb and Dilute Perturbations. The research is funded by GRO Fisheries Training Programme, a UNESCO Category 2 Centre in Iceland 
  • Identification and monitoring of fish cage aquaculture with remote sensing and machine learning. The research is funded by Science and Technology Facilities Council.
  • Interactive, web-based lake zonation tool for supporting the sustainable development of cage fish farming in Lake Victoria, Kenya. The project is supported by Agri-tech Catalyst Seeding Fund.
