In 2006 Bobby and Sherry Burnette with Love a Child Inc. approached Morning Star Fishermen with a plan to bring sustainable farming to their orphanage in Fond Parisien, Haiti. The Tilapia Fish Farm and Training Facility began with 275 juvenile fish, and has since then produced over 20,000 fish. The locals are not only given much needed protein through this facility, but they are blessed with valuable training that allows them to operate their own aquaculture systems, and to provide for their families. This uniquely wind powered Tilapia Farm is not yet an aquaponic facility, but the fish waste is recycled as fertilizer for their earth gardens.
MSF receives regular updates from Bobby and Sherry, who still manage the operation. They hope to one day have a fully functioning aquaponic training facility very similar to what you can see right here at Morning Star. Plans for our team to return to Fond Parisien are underway, and MSF looks forward to what the future will bring through this partnership. If you would like to partner with Morning Star Fishermen to be part of the international movement for sustainable farming, you can give a donation of any amount today. Your gift does not stop here; we take it to the farthest reaches of the earth and use it to make a difference in people’s lives. Thank you for your ongoing support!
