In the early morning we got tro-tros for reaching the fish-feed factory and meet the boss. After a really nice talk with him, Emilie planned the production of experimental diets with maggot meal with feed producer and his colleagues.
Before coming back to the maggot farm, in Ashaiman we had a delicious and nice lunch with Jacob, an NGO deputy Country director.

Then we arrived to the maggot farm where we spent the afternoon enjoying the kind staff within the pleasant company of the four Ghanaian researchers before coming back to Kpong.
