Aquaculture Smallholder Business Development


🐟 💦 The production of fish and other aquatic animals from capture fisheries is not enough to supply the growing global demand for seafood. Aquaculture production has grown steadily in the past decades in response to this demand. Aquaculture now supplies half of the fish and seafood consumed by people. Small producers do play an important role in the supply of fish especially on local level, but individual small producers face many challenges.

✅The Global aquaculture situation

✅Position of small-scale aquaculture producers

✅Producing quality fish and other aquatic products in a responsible way

✅Relations with public and private actors that have a direct or indirect stake in aquaculture sector development;

✅Challenges for the management and performance of aquaculture producer organizations;
✅ Development of aquaculture small producer-inclusive programs.
