Fish for Africa Innovation Hub

WorldFish is an international, non-for-profit research organization that works to reduce hunger, malnutrition and poverty across Africa, Asia and Pacific. With a 45-year track record of leading science, the organization generates scientific evidence and innovations for the inclusive and sustainable development of aquaculture and fisheries to improve livelihoods and healthier diets for millions of people -- particularly women, children and young people -- who depend on fish for nourishment, incomes and job opportunities.

Farming fish in fresh water is more affordable and sustainable than in the ocean

A tidal wave of interest is building in farming the seas. It’s part of a global rush to exploit oceanic resources that’s been dubbed the “blue acceleration.” Optimistic projections say that smart mariculture – fish farming at sea – could increase ocean fish and shellfish production by 21 million to 44 million metric tons by 2050, a 36%-74% jump from current yields. Other estimates suggest that an ocean aquaculture area the size of Lake Michigan might produce the same amount of seafood as all of the world’s wild-caught fisheries combined.
