This annual report highlights some of our key achievements over the past year as we progress towards our impact targets. In Asia and Africa, our genetic improvement program took a major step forward with the use of genomic selection tools to introduce characteristics such as disease resistance and feed efficiency into our improved tilapia strains.
In this paper we aim to contribute to the literature on emerging and transforming aquaculture value chains in Africa by examining recent developments in the aquaculture sector in Zambia. The overall objective was to map the current value chain, describe the actors and stakeholders and understand the dynamics that have led to transformation in the value chain.
