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

The project aims to help small-scale shrimp and prawn farmers work collaboratively and scale up their participation in export market value chains, while also focusing on food safety, animal health, and the associated environmental and social issues.
This project explores the future of aquaculture development in Indonesia and identifies pathways for growth.

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.

Rice field fisheries (RFF), defined as the fishing done in and around rice fields, particularly during the flood season, are a vital source of income and nutrition for Cambodia’s poor farmers. To increase productivity and maintain biodiversity of wild fish in RFF, the project works in the Tonle Sap floodplain to improve management of community fish refuges (CFR), which provide dry season sanctuaries for broodstock.

The Scaling up Aquaculture Production (SAP) project supports the development of the aquaculture sector in Sierra Leone to increase fish production, consumption and the incomes of small-scale farmers. Led by WorldFish, the project focuses on Tonkolili district, one of the poorest and nutritionally-insecure regions in the country, with a 25 percent childhood stunting rate. A key project focus is on supporting smallholders to farm fish as part of profit-oriented agribusinesses, in parallel with improving input supply and market linkages.
