“To be the leading developer of sustainable Aquaculture, Agriculture, Fisheries and Environmental Management projects in sub-Saharan Africa and the Western Indian Ocean Region”


Advance Africa is an active collaborator with a host of credible institutions and related organisations. We see this as an important function of our mission; to provide additional value to our clients by drawing from our extensive global networks.

 One such collaboration is our working relationship with the Rhodes University’s Department of Ichthyology and Fisheries Science for strategic projects. The Department of Ichthyology and Fisheries Science is an internationally recognized, leading African academic institution in the study of fish and the sustainable utilization of aquatic resources.

 With Professor Hecht’s long career at Rhodes University, where he was Head of Department for 20 years, and his ongoing supervisory role, Advance Africa has a strong affiliation with this leading academic institution.
