Fish farming

Annual report 2012/13

This Annual Report provides just a few examples of the pathways through which our work delivers benefits to poor people who rely on fish for food. You will find stories about:
 

Good aquaculture practice

Optimizing benefits from the Egyptian farmed fish value chain

Egyptian aquaculture is booming, yet greater fish quality and effective industry support are still needed. A value chain approach is helping research and development partners overcome barriers to sustainable growth.

Tilapia farming in Solomon Islands

A fish pond provides nutritious fish for the family. Before you start to think about how much fish your family needs to eat, whether you will also have extra fish to sell, where to sell your fish and whether you can sell them at a profit. Visit other people who are farming fish and find out what they think.

 

Farms for the future: climate smart farming in Bangladesh

The impact of changing climate patterns in the decades to come will be felt by nations across the globe, but perhaps none more so than Bangladesh. Global sea level rise threaten to inundate the low-lying country, the majority of which lies less than one meter above sea level on the world’s largest river delta.

Small-fish aquaculture feeds poor consumers and business growth

Reflections from Stephen Hall, Director-General, WorldFish in response to Sam Eaton’s Scaling up: Vietnamese fish farms search for eco-friendly formula. Originally published on Center for Investigative Reporting blog, As aquaculture booms, make room for small fish. Sam Eaton presents a great picture of how catfish culture has evolved in Vietnam. His story illustrates well the opportunity and challenge faced by the global aquaculture industry. The opportunity lies in the fact that fish farming is the only means for meeting the world’s growing demand for fish. The challenge is that meeting that demand will require careful attention to ensure that farms are well-managed to minimize impact on the environment and maintain profitability.

Fish and rice, together at last

A new long-term project aims to boost fish stocks in rice fields. That was not a typo.
 
For years, rice farmers in Cambodia have swept up fish – as well as frogs, snails and other aquatic fauna – that make their way from streams, canals and floodplains into rice fields. They then sell the fresh catches on the side or eat them at home.
