WorldFish is supporting a catla breeding program in Bangladesh
Each month, we highlight a selection of our new publications. Feed was the focus of two papers in May, with a novel feeding system and a plant-based alternative to fishmeal showing potentially significant cost and sustainability benefits. The third study presented was able to determine whether ‘candidate founders’ of a carp breeding program in Bangladesh were related, providing crucial insights for the genetic robustness of the program.

Small-scale fisheries in Cambodia
Each month, we highlight a selection of our new publications. Research published in March included a number of firsts. Among them was the first study to estimate agonistic behavior and feed efficiency in individual Nile tilapia, an understanding of which will support the development of sustainable aquaculture.
