Aquatic foods (animals and plants grown or harvested from water for food or feed) provide micronutrient-rich foods for 3.3 billion people and support the livelihoods of over 120 million. However, inadequate management and competing demands for aquatic foods by wealthier consumers threaten access to food for low-income consumers as well as food and income for the majority of small-scale actors in wild-caught aquatic food systems.
In conjunction with WorldFish’s Board Chair, Yusuf Abubakar and Vice Chair, Alyssa Jade’s visit to WorldFish HQ in Penang, Malaysia, WorldFish will be organizing a TEDTalk session to share solutions to improve the sustainability of aquatic food systems must integrate environmental sustainability, social and economic inclusion, nutrition and public health and their linkages to food, land and water systems.
