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.

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.

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.
