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.

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.

Bangladesh has chronic levels of undernutrition which most dramatically effect pregnant women and children. The project, “Fish consumption in the first 1,000 days for increased protein intake and improved nutrition,” aims to improve the nutritional status of pregnant and lactating women and infants 6-23 months of age in Bangladesh through the provision of nutritious foods products made from common, locally available ingredients.
