FISH events: Visioning for a Learning Hub of Excellence

WorldFish researchers from Solomon Islands, Timor Leste and partner organization, James Cook University are meeting next week at the Nusa Tupe Research Station in Western Province of Solomon Islands.

For 20 years, WorldFish research in the Solomon Islands has sought to improve the performance of fisheries and aquaculture for food security and human wellbeing. Insights from this work are shared across the Pacific region.

In this week meeting, FISH Flagship Leader Sustaining Small-Scale Fisheries, Dr. Phillippa Cohen, and WorldFish Country Director Solomon Islands, Dr. Delvene Boso together with a team of researchers will be gathered in Solomon Islands Nusa Tupe research station to refine and further develop plans of the four major research pillars that fall under the FISH CRP: 

  • Nutrition-sensitive approaches to fisheries management and value chains
  • Gender-inclusive community-based, co-management of fisheries resources
  • Resilient and equitable fish-based livelihoods to reduce poverty and improve nutrition
  • Building adaptive capacity in the face of climate change

The Nusa Tupe station brings the organization's global mission - to improve livelihoods and food security through fisheries and aquaculture - to sea in the Solomon Islands.
