It is not possible to continue exploiting them because we run the risk of over-exploiting them. So we must move toward aquaculture. Between both types of aquaculture, the freshwater kind and the ocean variety, the freshwater one has a precedent, more advanced technology and it is easier." 15.

Wide shot workers and scientists walking outside near large breeding tanks LEAD IN : Cuba is famous for its coastline and beautiful sea. But concern about the island's ability to feed its population in the future has led to the authorities investing in developing aquaculture with freshwater species, to replace imported fish. STORYLINE: The "Mamposton Aquaculture Center", consisting of 17 hectares in San Jose de las Lajas (30 kilometres outside of Havana) is a centre of excellence for fish farming, especially the catfish and the tilapia. "Mamposton" produces 300 metric tons of fish yearly. Of the 26 fish farms on the island, it is the largest. Authorities are hoping to save millions of dollars by replacing costly imports with locally produced fish. So why cultivate freshwater fish in reservoirs and tanks when approximately 6-thousand kilometres (3728 miles) of coastline surround the island? It may seem paradoxical, but local authorities assured AP that it is all "part of a strategy". According to Julio Baisre, special assistant to the recently restructured Fisheries Ministry of Cuba, the Cuban coastline is rich in beauty but poor as a food source. The ocean's greatest fish reserves are limited to four specific zones: South America, southern Africa, the Mediterranean, and the coast of California. More than 50% of the world's catch comes from those specific areas that amount to only 1% of the world's bodies of water. According to the last official numbers available from 2008, the volume of capture in Cuba for the year was 60,900 metric tons of fish (both freshwater and saltwater) and seafood (lobster and shrimp). In addition another 30,500 tons, came from freshwater fish farms. Cuba buys 30,000 additional tons on the international market to satisfy the country's needs. Authorities indicated that in 2007 Cuba spent 48-million U.S. dollars importing fish mostly destined for sale in the locally subsidised market. According to a recent report from the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organisation, F.A.O., Cuba lacks "sufficient infrastructure and qualified personnel" to work towards the promotion of aquaculture in the future. Cuba exports 81-million U.S. dollars in fish products, primarily lobster and shrimp. The island cultivates 3.6 tons of farmed shrimp destined for Europe.

Cubana London explores Cuba's world-leading coffee production. Cuba’s Caribbean mountains provide one of the world’s best coffee growing climates, where the coffee grows in rich, loamy soils under the shade of native trees, in a natural environment, tended by farmers who hand their skills down through generations. Cubana London (based in Waterloo & Smithfield) carefully roasts these special beans in small quantities to ensure freshness. The result is a light but strong coffee which epitomises the qualities of Cuba! Learn more about Cubana London's coffee culture: http://www.cubana.co.uk/coffee-roastery/

Exceptional soil conditions, a particular climate and the long experience of tobacco growers make the San Juan y Martinez massif the best land for the production of the leaves, which make Cuban cigars so admired. Participants in the XVIII Habano Festival toured on Tuesday the fields of the western Cuban province of Pinar del Rio, considered as the place where the best tobacco leaves are harvested. The tour allowed visitors to appreciate the different stages of the tobacco crop, such as the sorting of leaves, their selection, the planting of seeds, and the drying process. Furthermore, they were able to appreciate the experience of the farmers, whose families have been in the business for years and uphold indisputable traditions that give the cigars their stamp of distinction. (Soundbite, Spanish) Jose Hernandez, tobacco farmer "I have been surrounded by tobacco since I was a child. I have always known tobacco. Now, I think that things will change. The relations with the United States are changing so I think things will get better. " voiceover The Habano Festival is organized by Habanos SA, a joint venture between state-owned Cubatabaco and Altadis, the Franco-German subsidiary of British multinational Imperial Tobacco.

Wide of people walking in street past figure of St. Lazaro STORYLINE Cuba formally authorised the creation of its first non-agricultural cooperatives on Tuesday, a measure expected to permit the growth of midsize businesses as part of President Raul Castro's plan to open the economy to some liberalisation. While agricultural collectives have been around since the 1990s, these will be the first worker-run non-farm co-ops to exist after decades in which the Cuban state has controlled nearly the entire economy. It's too early to say whether Cuba's move towards more capitalism will pay off. The average salary for workers remains very low, with the average wage around 20-30 US dollars per month (15 to 23 euros/month). The low pay makes shopping at agricultural cooperatives a challenge for some. More than 200 co-ops will be established in an initial trial period in sectors from transportation and construction to fishing and services, Communist Party newspaper Granma reported. The state will also lease out businesses such as restaurants and repair shops for their employees to run cooperatively. The rules say a cooperative can be formed by three or more Cuban nationals. For restaurant owners, the challenges of finding goods and services make running a business highly unpredictable. "In some cases, in the city there are some small open spaces that sometimes we can pay someone to produce something for us. They can grow something under cover," said Havana restaurant owner Laura Escobar, "but it's very complicated." For other services, like hairdressers or barber shops, where the workers will be allowed to rent the establishments from the state, the picture is a bit brighter. "I think the system of renting is very good. We will all benefit, the country and us individually," said hairstylist Teresa Ponte while she gave a man a trim a barber shop in central Havana. Castro's five-year plan of gradual reform has seen other measures like the leasing of state land to independent growers, the legalised sale of cars and real estate and eased restrictions on travel.

While they can't match states like North Carolina and Kentucky when it comes to quantity, growers in South Georgia are able to produce some of the highest quality tobacco in the country. Recently, a number of those producers and industry leaders took part in the annual Georgia-Florida Tobacco Tour. Damon Jones was on the tour, and he explains why growers are so optimistic about this year's crop despite the slow start.
