Through this partnership with the Government of Odisha in India, WorldFish provides support to increase the productivity of aquaculture through improvements in seed, technology and farming systems. A long-term goal is to foster a sustainable aquaculture sector in which the private sector will be more willing to invest. The partnership will also focus on improving the value chain for aquaculture products to improve nutrition security in Odisha state, where over 25% of children under five in rural areas are malnourished. Further, the partnership aims to improve the planning and management of natural resources for sustainable aquaculture and fisheries.
