Small fish meets nourishment of mothers, children

RANGPUR, July 19 (BSS): Production of micronutrient-enriched small fishes has been increasing satisfactorily in recent years in rural Bangladesh to effectively meet nourishment of the malnourished pregnant women, lactating mothers and babies.

Increased production of small fish in wetlands combats micronutrient deficiencies in Bangladesh

Increased production of mola and other small fish can be achieved through stock enhancement and sustainable management of natural wetlands.

Pond polyculture technologies combat micronutrient deficiencies and increase household income in Bangladesh

Two sustainable, low-cost pond polyculture technologies have been developed to culture carps and mola in ponds, and culture carps and mola in ponds connected to rice fields. These technologies can increase total fish production from ponds.

New tools reveal crucial role of fisheries in Cambodia

Better tools to address the inextricable links between land, water resources, fisheries and livelihoods have been developed, adopted and adapted to manage the resources in the Tonle Sap wetlands of Cambodia. 

Wetlands: towards a sustainable future

Wetland environments, including freshwater floodplains and coastal deltas, can be highly productive; more than 700 million people around the world depend directly on them, whether for crop production, fishing, livestock rearing or other natural resources. But wetland livelihoods typically face a myriad of constraints, and increasingly extreme and unpredictable seasonal rainfall patterns are making matters worse for many.

More fish from Cambodia’s rice fields

The rice field fisheries (RFFs) of Cambodia cover a large part of the country in practically all areas where rice is cultivated. For human nutrition, fish and other aquatic animals (collectively referred to as ‘fish’ in this project) vary in importance – depending on the typology of the rice field fisheries, the source of the supply (e.g. lake and major rivers) and the demand or ‘need’ for fish as a source of animal protein.
