This working paper is a collaboration between two CGIAR Research Programs (CRPs): Fish Agri-Food Systems (FISH) and Roots, Tubers and Bananas (RTB). It documents linkages between fish, roots, tubers and bananas (RTB crops) within food systems; identifies opportunities for strengthened integration in production systems, animal feed and nutritional products; and identifies constraints and research gaps, and provides policy recommendations that support nutrition-sensitive food systems.
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.
