Sun Yat Sen University – the Golden Pond

Enactus team from Sun Yat Sen University targeted the tilapia fish farmers in Zhuhai whose fish farming was limited to certain months of the year and who faced dwindling fish stocks due to decreased oxygen content in the water caused by chemical fertilizers. The team came up with one solution to both problems. In the months of the year that the ponds were empty of tilapia, they planted ryegrass, a kind of good quality animal feed, which could be sold by the fish farmers as an extra income source. Additionally, by growing ryegrass in the ponds, the oxygen levels increased resulting in more fish.

Sun Yat Sen University won the honr of the National Chapion of 2011 Enactus ( formerly known as ) National Competition and represented China in 2011 Enactus ( formerly known as) World Cup held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Learn more about Enactus Projects at Enactus Casebook.
