Production and conservation of nutrient-rich small fish (SIS) in ponds and wetlands for nutrition security and livelihoods in South Asia

Small indigenous fish species (SIS) are an important source of essential macro- and micronutrients which can play an important role in the elimination of malnutrition and micronutrient defciencies in the populations of many South and Southeast Asian countries.

Teaching People Not Just to Fish, But to Build Businesses Too

As USAID’s annual letter this year notes, in development it is no longer enough to teach a farmer to grow a new crop—or in this case, to fish. Our work isn’t done until we help a farmer learn to run a successful business too. This is precisely what is happening in Bangladesh.

Lessons from implementing, adapting and sustaining community-based adaptive marine resource management

Community-based marine resource management is recognized by the Government of Solomon Islands as the principle strategy for use in marine conservation and small-scale fisheries management. This strategy is particularly important in Solomon Islands due to the constitutionally recognized customary tenure systems that are in place in rural areas where the majority of the population resides. Many government agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), including WorldFish, provide support to rural communities in their efforts to improve the management of their marine resources. During the last eight years in which WorldFish has worked alongside communities to support the implementation of community-based resource management (CBRM), various lessons have emerged or been reinforced. These lessons represent important considerations for CBRM, and for engaging with and supporting communities.

How aid can support sustainable fisheries for a food-secure world

Fish for Nutrition

“Mache bhate Bengali” – “Fish and rice make a Bengali”. Situated on the deltas of three of the world’s largest river systems, it’s not surprising fish is part of daily life in Bangladesh. Small-scale aquacultural farmers sell fish from their homestead pond at the local market.
