The WorldFish Rohu Genetic Improvement Program aims to substantially increase aquaculture productivity in Bangladesh by developing and disseminating rapidly growing rohu to farmers. Genetically improved rohu seed will be available in Bangladesh beginning in 2020. These fish are expected to grow 20%–30% more rapidly than currently available seed.
In 2012, the National Directorate of Fisheries and Aquaculture (NDFA), Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF) Timor-Leste, developed the National Aquaculture Development Strategy (NADS) 2012–2030 with technical assistance from WorldFish. The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (NZ MFAT) provided funding to support implementation of NADS through the Partnership for Aquaculture Development in Timor-Leste (PADTL) project (2014–2019).
