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.

WorldFish, USAID and the Government of Bangladesh (GoB) have come together to support the country’s coastal fishing communities and improve food security through research-led fisheries management initiatives. The project seeks to strengthen the ability of local communities, especially women, to extract maximum benefit from coastal environments using sustainable best practices and to mitigate the adverse affects of climate change. It will work closely with small-scale artisanal catch fisheries that target hilsa shad, the national fish of Bangladesh.

Poverty, vulnerability and inequality persist in many sectors of Pacific Island society. Women, men and youth often have limited opportunities to improve wellbeing outside of natural resource exploitation and, in many cases, current livelihoods do not offer a pathway out of poverty and food insecurity. This project implements a participatory livelihoods enhancement approach with community groups in Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste, where visions and enhancement pathways are co-developed into action plans. These plans are then implemented and refined through cycles of action and reflection.

Rice field fisheries constitute a vital source of income and nutrition for Cambodia’s poor farmers. However, as population and demand for fish grows, there has been a marked decline in yields and a degradation of aquatic biodiversity. Intensification of rice farming, pesticides and damage to habitats have also contributed to this problem. WorldFish is partnering with NGOs, local authorities and national universities to research ways to increase productivity, expand rice field fisheries while seeking innovative ways to increase biodiversity and protect ecosystems.
