In the developing world, more than one billion poor people obtain most of their animal protein from fish, and 250 million depend on fishing and aquaculture for their livelihoods. WorldFish, an international, nonprofit research organization, harnesses the potential of sustainable fisheries and aquaculture to increase food and nutrition security and promote better livelihoods.
WorldFish uses its technical and scientific expertise in fisheries and aquaculture to promote evidence-based development solutions that help the millions who are dependent on fish for food and livelihoods.
WorldFish focuses its expertise and research in the following areas:
- Sustainably increasing the productivity of small-scale aquaculture
- Improving nutrition and health through fisheries and aquaculture
- Building adaptive capacity to climate change in fisheries and aquaculture
- Identifying and promoting policies and practices to increase the resilience of small-scale fisheries
- Strengthening gender equality in fish-dependent communities
- Increasing the benefits to poor people from fisheries and aquaculture value chains
By 2025 WorldFish, together with our donors and partners, will improve the lives of 27 million people.
