Today, fish provides more than one billion poor people with most of their daily animal protein and millions depend on fisheries and aquaculture for their livelihoods. Improving the productivity of fisheries and aquaculture is vital to improving food and nutrition security, increasing income and improving livelihoods, promoting economic growth and protecting our environment and natural resources.
WorldFish is an international, nonprofit research organization that harnesses the potential of fisheries and aquaculture to reduce hunger and poverty. Utilizing its scientific expertise, its networks and partnerships and an innovative ‘research in development’ approach, WorldFish increases the productivity, sustainability and resilience of fisheries and aquaculture, and improves the lives of poor people who rely on them. WorldFish, together with our donors and partners, will improve the lives of 27 million people.
Since 1975, WorldFish has been recognized as a global expert on fisheries and aquaculture. With more than 40 years of experience working with local communities in Africa, Asia, and the Pacific, WorldFish is deeply committed to the needs of millions of poor people who rely on fish for food, nutrition and income, and is focused on creating a more food secure and prosperous future for them.
