Fish is an irreplaceable animal-source hashtag#food for the first 1,000 days of life for achieving optimal child growth, development and cognition. Here's how hashtag#WorldFish is promoting nutrition-sensitive hashtag#aquaculture in Bangladesh by integrating nutrient-rich small indigenous fish species into existing carp polyculture: http://bit.ly/2AoIz7O

In Bangladesh, the growth of #aquaculture and new technologies designed to maximise productivity has led to a shift away from diverse capture species toward the supply and consumption of a few #farmed fish species, with little consideration for the #nutritional quality of fish. Read how​ ​small indigenous species​ ​can play a vital role in increasing household dietary diversity and #micronutrient intake >> http://bit.ly/2ySvGlQ

As part of the CGIAR Research Program on Fish Agri-Food Systems, #WorldFish and the Pacific Community have created information sheets that explain how to keep fish fresh, healthy and safe for human consumption for as long as possible. These information sheets are available for #fishers, fish vendors and customers >> http://bit.ly/2K2iewr

In the face of rising fish production costs such as feed and land rental, Egyptian #farmers are looking for innovative and sustainable ways to ensure higher productivity and profitability. Watch this video to learn how #WorldFish is working on increasing the productivity of #aquaculture in existing pond units by culturing fish in aerated raceways and removing solid wastes >> http://bit.ly/2K7MkPI​

Does #aquaculture contribute to the food and nutrition security of poorer people in fish producing countries? Many studies have concluded it does not. In this #blog post, Ben Belton discusses how the vast majority of farmed #fish is consumed in the same developing countries where it is produced, and is widely accessible to poorer consumers in local #markets: http://bit.ly/2GujQl4
