The Asian development bank and WorldFish : net gains of partnership to improve livelihoods and bolster regional development, cooperation and trade

ADB is a steadfast partner of the WorldFish Center, having invested since 1987 more than US$7.6 million in WorldFish projects. Like ADB, WorldFish organizes its work regionally, maintaining an office for South Asia in Dhaka, Bangladesh; the Pacific in Noumea, New Caledonia; and the Greater Mekong Subregion in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. WorldFish combines East and Southeast Asia — two separate desks at ADB — under its headquarters in Penang and a Philippine country office in Los Baños. Additional country offices are planned for Indonesia and China.

In some areas, fishing pressure has already led to decline of key fish species, and malnutrition remains a problem.
