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.

The seas between Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Timor-Leste, Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands constitute some of the most biologically diverse waters in the world. However, the area’s ecosystems, especially the Sulu-Sulawesi Marine Ecoregion (SSME), are under intense pressure from overfishing, population pressure and pollution. The Coastal and Marine Resources Management in the Coral Triangle project seeks to develop a monitoring, control and surveillance system for coral reef fish to protect them from overfishing and illegal reef fishing.

Knowledge of how ecosystem services affect the lives of the world’s poor is crucial in management strategies. Such knowledge is essential to making a meaningful impact on food and nutrition security while conserving vital ecosystems. The project aims to build a knowledge base on the intersection between communities and their environment and the relationship between agriculture and forest ecosystems.

Small-scale and commercial aquaculture is growing in Bangladesh and has tremendous potential to increase both food security and incomes. This project focuses on implementing market development interventions for the farmed fish sector in Bangladesh by targeting improvements in fish feed production. The project aims to build capacity in commercial feed companies, focusing on product quality, formulation and improvements to process management as well as machine operation, alternative energy sources, alternative raw materials, software operation, and improvements in the supply chain.
