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.

A new, improved strain of tilapia could have enormous benefits for India’s poor, boosting yields, increasing nutritional benefits and opening aquaculture to more people. Genetically Improved Farmed Tilapia (GIFT) could address the twin problems Indian producers face with current strains by improving the quality of the bloodstock and increasing efficiencies. The project, in partnership with Rajiv Gandhi Center for Aquaculture, involves the establishment of a nucleus for the selective breeding and genetic improvement of the GIFT tilapia in India.

The sea cucumber, a member of the sandfish family, has provided a valuable source of income for communities across the Asia-Pacific region for decades. However, in recent years, stocks have plummeted due to overfishing and ecosystem damage.

The Feed the Future Bangladesh Aquaculture and Nutrition Activity’s the goal is to achieve inclusive aquaculture sector growth through a market system approach in the Feed the Future Zone of Influence (ZOI)
