WorldFish accomplishes its research through more than 160 donor-funded projects that are part of the CGIAR Research Programs.

The project aims to help small-scale shrimp and prawn farmers work collaboratively and scale up their participation in export market value chains, while also focusing on food safety, animal health, and the associated environmental and social issues.
This project explores the future of aquaculture development in Indonesia and identifies pathways for growth.

Fish is the most important animal-source food in Bangladesh. Approximately 60 percent of the population eats fish at least every other day, with per capita daily consumption at 44 grams for the poorest households.  Fish is rich in micronutrients like vitamin A, iron, and zinc. Vitamin A is essential for childhood survival, zinc reduces stunting in children and iron is essential for brain development in children. Bangladesh has high incidence of micronutrient deficiency.

Aquaculture for Low Income Consumers (AquaLINC) is a project that aims to increase supplies of affordable and nutritious fish for poor consumers. It will explore innovative production methods to produce smaller tilapias, and test fish feeding approaches to improve the nutritional quality of fish for consumption. Trials will be done on farms and research stations to evaluate the economic and technical feasibility of producing smaller and more nutritious fish.

The Philippines has experienced a dramatic decline in fish stocks due to overfishing and habitat degradation while demand for fish and fish-based products has continued to rise. In partnership with the Philippines’ government, the Aquaculture Futures in the Philippines project explores the future of aquaculture development in the Philippines and finds ways to grow public and private investment in the sector while sustainably improving efficiency and productivity.
