WorldFish had a remarkable year in 2019 developing and scaling scientific innovations that support the sustainable transformation of food systems with fish and other aquatic foods for the benefit of people and the planet.
This poster highlights the benefits of eating Small Indigineous Fish (SIS), how to harvest it, and the benefits of growing them with other fish species. The benefits of the partial harvesting that they don't need to spend access money rather they get extra income. It gives information about the vitamins, protein, calcium, and other minerals they can gain from the SIS consumption.
This poster captures the question and answers on where to find the SIS, how to raise the SIS, the possibilites of growing it with other fish species including Rohu and Mrigal. What is SIS partial harvesting, frequency of harvesting, and potential benefits of it. The period of harvesting should be betwen one to two months after the SIS transferred from the natural sources.
The poster captures information about the malnutiron and importance of eating SIS strating from pregnancy till the child is two years old. They should consume fish (SIS) for 1000 days.

- International fish trade: Impact assessment by Mr. Marcio Cstro de Souza, FAO.
- Impact of COVID-19 on fishing sector in Southeast Asia: overview by Mr. Apimeleki Cokanasiga, INFOFISH.
- COVID-19 impacts on fish and aquatic food systems by Dr. Michael Phillips, CGIAR Research Program, Worldfish Center.
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.
Although as of June 1, 2020, Solomon Islands had no coronavirus cases, there was a national economic recession plus restrictions on people’s movement, gatherings, education and business activities. For rural areas, two of the biggest changes have been increased circulation of people—those who moved out of Honiara and back to the provinces—and reduced cash flow. Food trade is impacted by a lack of cash in circulation, meaning reduced marketing of foods in villages and a rise in bartering of fish for other foods.

IWMI, a managing partner of FISH, conducted an assessment of youth participation in SSF, aquaculture and value chains between November 2017 and May 2018. The assessment was conducted in Africa and the Asia-Pacific, with a particular focus on the FISH focal countries of Egypt, Nigeria, Tanzania and Zambia in Africa and Bangladesh, Cambodia, Myanmar and Solomon Islands in the Asia-Pacific.
