Farmed fish is playing an ever larger role in Asian diets, contributing to diversification away from the main staple food, rice. But what are the implications of such changes for nutrition, health and livelihoods?
By 2025, African governments hope that 40 percent of the total fish consumed in Africa will be met by aquaculture. Ongoing research and training provided by the WorldFish-run Africa Aquaculture Research and Training Center in Egypt will be critical to achieving this goal.
Despite the recent growth of aquaculture in Myanmar, the full potential of aquaculture to drive rural economic development and contribute to food security is still unrealized, according to research funded by USAID and the Livelihoods and Food Security Improvement Trust (LIFT).
