Fishermen can just realize benefit of fishing activity if supply of ice blocks is ensured as it will add value to the quality of fish products and therefore enabling small fishermen folks to earn more income by reducing post-harvest losses. An Ice block making facility has been established at Kibara centre in Bunda district to ensure supply of Ice flake for storage and preservation of fish. Ice flake is important material used to preserve fish to maintain its quality and aroma before being taken to the market.

The procured machine has the capacity of producing 4 tons of flake ice per 24 hours while the cold room can preserve up to 7 tons of flake ice of which will sold to small fishermen at favorable price. Either the machine has already arrived at factory site and installed ready to start production.
