WorldFish and Skretting consolidate their collaboratio to address food security in Africa.

WorldFish and Skretting join efforts to develop aquaculture in Africa

  (NORWAY, 12/14/2018)

WorldFish has partnered Skretting in an attempt to address food and nutrition security in Africa through collaborative aquaculture support and innovation.

FAO, partners move to shore up support for aquaculture policies to combat hunger and malnutrition in Africa

From Worldfish, it was stressed that this partnership is intended to contribute to feeding the growing population forecast by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) mainly in African countries.

The initiative will initially focus on two key areas:

  • The first consists of understanding and analyzing the structure of the aquaculture industry in Africa. Knowing the different stakeholders involved and their impact on the value chain allows for better decision-making and public policy.
  • The second one implies analyzing and improving farming practices. The partners will work with a panel of fish farmers to develop best management practices, and test new technologies using mobile applications to gather and feedback data to the farmers to enhance performance.

“We believe that strategic collaborations with the private sector are essential for accelerating the sustainable development of aquaculture in Africa’s developing economies,” says Dr. Gareth Johnstone, Director General, WorldFish. 

“Our partnership with Skretting will enable the scaling of tried and tested technologies and best practices—one of our core goals—paving the way for fish to boost more nutritious diets and secure steady incomes and improved livelihoods across the continent,” Johnstone adds.

For his part, Rob Kiers, Managing Director Skretting Asia and Africa, points out that Skretting wants to help achieve food security in Africa, a goal that is in line with their mission of ‘Feeding the Future’.

“Fish is an important part of the diet in African countries, where 18.4 per cent of animal protein intake comes from fish. We will work with WorldFish to develop the local aquaculture industry in a shared-value approach and collect data to deliver fish farmers the right feed according to their needs,” Kiers states.

Skretting and WorldFish have been working together for over two years at the WorldFish Aquaculture Research and Training Center in Abbassa, Egypt on tilapia nutrition and raw feed material evaluation.

They have also collaborated on Skretting’s Community Development Project in Zambia.

Initial projects in Egypt and Zambia are due to start in 2019.
