Fish Innovation Lab's Work in Asia Leads to Growth and Resilience in Aquaculture and Fisheries

The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Fish has had a total of eight activities in Bangladesh and Cambodia all working toward the goal of alleviating poverty and improving nutrition in vulnerable populations through reliable and inclusive provision of fish. Within the last five years, the activities have worked to strengthen the aquaculture and fisheries sectors to improve the lives of men, women, and children in Bangladesh and Cambodia. The research teams have accomplished this by increasing the sustainability of the fisheries in Cambodia, developing cost-effective feeds, improving commercial fish seed production, identifying major sources of foodborne pathogens, improving the genetics of carp, analyzing the economic implications of the aquaculture value chain, and using technology in various ways to improve, promote, and analyze aquaculture.
