Overview

Assembling an innovative fish farming technology package capable of increasing fish production by 50 percent. The aim is to increase incomes, food production, and enhance nutrition security in Malawi. Researchers address the current constraints to aquaculture development related to lack of quality seed and feed, lack of appropriate production technologies, and lack of marketing channels. They are developing a model for fingerling production and distribution, facilitating the adoption of improved management practices and developing fish marketing channels from rural producers to urban and peri-urban markets.
