The Aquaculture Program
More than 50% of all fish we consume is farmed. Aquaculture is an important source of high protein food worldwide. However, only 2% of all farmed fish is produced in Africa, of which two-thirds is produced in Egypt. Most fish consumed in Africa comes from increasingly depleted capture fisheries or is imported. Our aim is to create a sustainable aquaculture sector locally, that can provide nutrition and employment for local communities.
The Aquaculture Program is one of the key sector transformation programs within IDH that aims to increase responsible production of key species such as tilapia, shrimp and pangasius. Our interventions consist of convening public private partnerships and collaborating with top-notch aquaculture producers to create centres of excellence as to provide services to Small and Medium Enterprises to develop a sustainable aquaculture sector.
