WorldFish accomplishes its research through more than 160 donor-funded projects that are part of the CGIAR Research Programs.

This project explores the future of aquaculture development in Indonesia and identifies pathways for growth.

Hilsa (Tenualosa ilisha) is an valuable resource for millions of people in the Bay of Bengal, but its breeding and migratory habits remain largely unknown. Identifying the breeding sites and main inland migration routes of hilsa is important for management and the sustainability of the resource. The project fills a knowledge gap about hilsa and undertakes the identification of the main spawning grounds in the Ayeyarwady Delta and determines the extent of its migration along the Ayeyarwady River.

The vast majority of Solomon Islanders depend on fishing and farming for food and livelihoods. However, coastal marine resources are under threat due to overfishing, the effects of climate change and ecosystem degradation. Improving Community-based Fisheries Management or PacFisheries is a community-based project that aims to improve the lives of the people in the Solomon Islands through co-developing comprehensive natural resource management plans. Working with partner NGOs and government, the project will monitor the development and assess the effectiveness of local management plans.

Egypt has a well-established aquaculture industry that has the potential to have a greater impact on the country’s persistently high unemployment and endemic poverty rates through greater efficiencies and productivity. Aquaculture in Egypt now provides more than 100,000 full or part‐time jobs along the value chain and supports the livelihoods of up to one million people.
