Royale Highlands Trout

The Largest Trout Farm in Africa
The Largest Trout Farm in Africa This Highlands Aquaculture Initiative is destined to become the largest trout farm on the African continent. Most of Southern Africa is unsuitable for trout production, which needs clean, cold, well-aerated water. The Katse lake area is ideally suited to trout farming, and produces high quality trout all year round.

The initial project will produce 300 tons of trout per annum through net pen technology. Future phases at sites on Mohale, Muela and the proposed Polihali in the Mokhotlong district will expand this production over the next 5 years to around 3000 tons per annum..
