In Bangladesh, fish is by far the most commonly consumed animal-source food across all population groups, with annual per capita consumption of 19.71 kg. Both capture fisheries and aquaculture play significant roles in fish production and consumption. FISH works with the Bangladesh Government and development partners to create a more productive fisheries and aquaculture sector that contributes to diversified and resilient rural livelihoods and promotes food and nutrition security.
There is great potential to scale up production with innovations such as community-based fisheries management, sustainable feeds and low-carbon production systems.
