The Competitiveness Company (TCC) manages the Jamaica Ornamental Fish Cluster (JOFC) and has been a member of Ornamental Fish International (OFI) for 4 years. The Cluster consists of more than 150 small, urban fish farmers that breed and produce a variety of pet fish for local sale and export. The Cluster started as a social initiative aimed at providing unemployed and unattached inner-city youth with an opportunity to receive skills training in aquaculture and earn an income. It is has since grown to represent a pioneering social enterprise venture. The JOFC now produces and ships pet fish to clients in the US and Canada with plans to expand production and outreach to European markets. Our objective is to engage closely with our clients in order to identify their needs and deliver in a timely and service oriented way. In so doing, the young farmers will be able to earn a sustainable income.
