This paper aims to elucidate current knowledge of gendered engagement in and returns from aquaculture value chains.
This brief focuses on gender relations in fish farming and value chains in Bangladesh, i.e. the roles women and men play in diverse aquaculture production systems and other value chain nodes, their relative access to and control over resources, intra-household decision-making, and social and gender norms and attitudes.
This paper documents learning across WorldFish’s value chain research efforts in Asia and Africa. It has three main objectives: (1) to take stock of WorldFish’s past and ongoing research on value chains; (2) to draw out commonalities and differences between these projects; and (3) to provide a synthesis of some learning that can guide future work.
This working paper from WorldFish assesses how gender has been integrated within aquaculture technology interventions in Bangladesh.
To develop future scenarios for Bangladesh’ fish food system, a two-day workshop (31 January – 1 February 2015) organized by the Department of Fisheries Bangladesh and WorldFish brought together experts across diverse fields including fisheries, aquaculture, nutrition, gender and trade. The workshop explored how the supply, demand and trade of fish may change over the next 10 to 20 years based on observed trends and drivers of change, such as sea level rise and population growth.
Fish is one of the most important sources of animal protein. It represents a low cost source of high quality protein, fatty acids and micronutrients that are essential for brain development in young children and part of a healthy diet.
Recent research in Bangladesh by WorldFish and partners provides proof of the long suspected link between aquaculture and poverty reduction.
