Fish Trade is working with nine African universities as research partners.

                                  

                        

By developing this capacity for research at national universities, Fish Trade is creating a partnership of African Knowledge Centers that understand the development priorities of their countries and regional economic communities.

The initiative will be a step towards reducing the fragmentation of fisheries’ sectoral capacity with regards to development policies and enhance knowledge-led policy development and implementation within the framework of the African Union Policy Framework and Reform Strategy for Fisheries and Aquaculture in Africa.
