Save the Children joins Feed the Future Aquaculture project in Bangladesh

Save the Children has now joined the Feed the Future Aquaculture project in Bangladesh, which is being led by WorldFish and funded by USAID. As a result, an additional 12,000 households are set to be included in the project in selected Nobo Jibon upazilas (districts), in rural Bangladesh.
 
The newly added households will be provided with technical training and better management practices for pond culture of fish and other related activities surrounding aquaculture. The Feed the Future Aquaculture project is a five-year USAID-funded project that will reach communities across 20 districts in the southern stretches of Barisal, Khulna and Dhaka divisions of Bangladesh.
 
WorldFish is directly implementing the multi-faceted project in close cooperation with the Department of Fisheries, Bangladesh (DoF), the Bangladesh Fisheries Research Institute (BFRI), and the Bangladesh Agricultural Research Council (BARC).
 
The Feed the Future Project aims to improve the quality and availability of fish and shrimp seed; increase household aquaculture for health, nutrition and improved livelihood and income; increase production in commercial aquaculture; and establish an appropriate policy framework that will protect the future of the aquaculture industry in Bangladesh.
