Due to its favourable environmental conditions and available water resources, the southern African nation of Angola has excellent potential for freshwater and marine aquaculture development.Most emphasis on fisheries in the country until now has been  concentrated on marine capture fisheries, and the fishing sector is the third most important sector for the Angolan economy, following the oil and diamond industries.

Currently, Angolan aquaculture production remains relatively modest, with an estimated 305 tonnes of production of mostly Nile tilapia, according to 2014 statistics published by FAO.This limited aquaculture production also translates into poor availability of quality fish seed and feed available and limited technical capacity in the region, areas that would require improvement to expand the sector.
