Aug 30, 2017

Singapore’s Food Navigator-Asia, a web-based news service, published an article on the recent IFPRI study on aquaculture in Bangladesh. The study, "The 'quiet revolution' in the aquaculture value chain in Bangladesh", led by Research Coordinator Ricardo Hernandez found that the market for farmed fish grew 25 times over three decades. Dr. Hernandez explained the benefits of commercially sold farmed fish in increasing local employment, generating investments, improving fish yields, and raising the nutritional profile of rural and urban poor.
