Reaping the rewards of aquaculture in Bangladesh

Situated at the apex of the Bay of Bengal, Bangladesh lies on the richly fertile delta plains that mark a boundary between the Indian subcontinent and South East Asia. With the Padma, Jamuna and Meghna Rivers and their many tributaries innervating the Bangladeshi lowlands, fishing and aquatic agriculture have been mainstays of the country’s predominantly rural communities for centuries. Working amidst this rich riparian heritage, the USAID Feed the Future Aquaculture project aims to increase the productivity of aquaculture farms and improve the lives of millions through better health and financial security. In a country where up to fifteen percent of the population regularly faces nutritional shortages and household incomes are some of the lowest in the world, the benefits of the Aquaculture project could be transformative for many.
