At least one-third of the species that inhabit the world’s oceans may remain completely unknown to science. That’s despite the fact that more species have been described in the last decade than in any previous one, according to a report published online on November 15 in the Cell Press publication Current Biology that details the first comprehensive register of marine species of the world—a...
Despite 40 years of gender being on the development agenda, inequalities have persisted which are greatly hampering progress in reducing poverty and food insecurity. A rethink is needed in how agricultural research and development addresses gender, with a new focus on approaches that challenge the norms and power relations that enable social inequalities to exist and persist. This was the...

The latest blog from WorldFish Director General, Stephen Hall, on his blog Expiscor.   For any organization trying to decide how best to achieve development impact, a good place to start is with a ‘Theory of Change’, or ToC. Formally defined as “a statement of the interconnected causal pathways that describe the types of interventions that bring about desired outcomes”, a ToC can be more...
How and where we allocate freshwater in an environment of increasing demand, and declining quality and availability is a major societal challenge.   The needs of local communities that are affected by dam construction and water abstraction are often similar to that of biodiversity. Yet, they are frequently superseded by the necessity to meet national demands for power, food and...
