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.

During the first 1,000 days of life, from pregnancy to a child’s second birthday, children are most vulnerable to the effects of undernutrition and disease. Suchana aims to reduce undernutrition and stunting in children in Bangladesh, by targeting children under two and women of reproductive age (15-45 years) from 250,000 poor households in Sylhet and Moulvibazar. The project has an integrated approach, adopting a range of market-based, gender-sensitive and nutrition-sensitive activities.

Since 2007, WorldFish has been working with the farmers of the Aceh region of Indonesia and has now launched a project to develop shrimp farming and improve the livelihoods of some of the area’s poorest farmers. Working with the Aceh Aquaculture Cooperative (AAC), the aim is to lend technical and financial support to promote sustainable and responsible shrimp farming.

Approximately 26% of Egyptians are resource-poor and suffer from a series of nutritional challenges, including high rates of childhood stunting, and vitamin and mineral deficiencies. The Sustainable Transformation of Egypt’s Aquaculture Market System (STREAMS) project aims to increase production of inexpensive, nutritious and safe fish from sustainable aquaculture systems to help improve the health and nutrition of Egypt’s resource-poor while creating employment and increasing incomes along the aquaculture value chain.
