WorldFish has played an instrumental role in shaping Egypt’s aquaculture sector since its establishment in the year 1999. The foundation of work by WorldFish, other public and private sector partners - with the invaluable support of the Government of Egypt, has helped facilitate an increasing exchange of scientific knowledge and learning, scale aquaculture innovations and built the capacity of policy makers, extension agents, aqua-preneurs and scientists from 108 countries across Africa, Asia and the Pacific.

Working to turn our ambition into reality for the benefit of Africa, the forums aims to catalyze a vibrant private sector with innovative fish-based enterprises and business associations, new skills, jobs and entrepreneurship opportunities, and provide space for multi-disciplinary science and cross-sector partnerships to create holistic food systems solutions and increase capacity for evidence-based policy and investment decisions.
