In the Solomon Islands, overfishing and climate change have depleted natural resources and increased pressures on subsistence-level livelihoods. The Developing Inland Aquaculture project is a four-year partnership between WorldFish and the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) which seeks to expand currently underdeveloped inland aquaculture (fish farming) to supplement dwindling marine resources in the Solomon Islands. Working with government agencies, the project will identify best practice production methods and examine how to effectively introduce or disseminate small-scale aquaculture and learning to communities. This project will build on previous research to help drive the expansion of inland fish farming.
