We see the potential in building relationships and connections and believe that money needs to be directed to the right places to see growth in aquaculture. Entrepreneurs and innovators need to have the space to grow, and smallholder fish farmers need to be recognised in the aquaculture supply chain. We have a regional focus on Africa and Asia as we look to expand and diversify into these markets.
Aquaculture, today and tomorrow
Technologies are being deployed and improvements are being made throughout the whole aquaculture system – from production through to the supply chains that take food from farm to plate. Aquaculture is widely recognized for its potential contribution to healthy and sustainable food systems and economic development and as a low-carbon food production system.
Yet progress is not being made fast enough – there are many areas, including our oceans and large parts of the planet in dire need of change. Malnutrition remains widespread, with significant fish deficits continuing to build in Africa. Innovations are applied unevenly, often used to higher-value commodities, and investments are not reaching where it is needed. Crucial parts of the aquaculture ecosystem are not receiving attention – millions of farmers, and consumers across Africa and Asia lack access to the opportunities that aquaculture could provide for decent work, good health, and sustainably produced food.
FUTUREFISH sees these aquaculture gaps as opportunities
FUTUREFISH is practically grounded in identifying products and creating solutions that work at scale based on sound research, scientific evidence, and market insights. We have a unique focus on dynamic emerging markets – low and middle-income countries – where the impacts and opportunities for aquaculture are substantial and aim to accelerate the adoption of innovations and business ideas that can deliver impact at scale.
