A fish agri-food system is an interconnected and interdependent system involving components of fish production, through to processing, marketing and consumption. FISH aims to enhance the sustainability, productivity and resilience of fish agri-food systems to reduce poverty, enhance food and nutrition security and improve natural resource systems.

The overarching research question for the research program is: How can we optimize the contributions of aquaculture and small-scale fisheries to reduce poverty and improve food and nutrition security, while enhancing environmental sustainability? Research is focused on the two interlinked challenges of sustainable aquaculture and sustaining small-scale fisheries, with integrated crosscutting themes of gender, youthcapacity development and climate change.
