WorldFish Incubator seeks to boost aquaculture productivity and efficiency and help communities reliant on fish as a major source of income and nutrition by assisting the development of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that form a crucial element of global fish production. With demand for fish rising along with population growth, this program supports startup SMEs in the adoption of sustainable technologies to help them achieve their potential. It provides the kinds of knowledge-sharing support they need to scale up: access to capital, business management expertise and the technical know-how to make a positive impact on local economies while fostering practices that preserve valuable ecosystems. The expansion of the WorldFish Incubator program will see $10 million (USD) invested in SMEs by 2020.
