A new understanding between WorldFish and FAO will combat hunger and improve livelihoods by promoting the impact of fisheries and aquaculture research.
After a month of intensive, hands-on practical learning, 16 students from
across southern Africa completed the first Aquaculture Vocational
Mentorship Course, held at the Lake Harvest company in Zimbabwe.
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.
