Webinar: Culture-based fisheries for rural development

Join us on 31 May for a free webinar on Culture-based fisheries for rural development, with leading experts from the Asian region.

Culture-based fisheries (CBF) are practices to enhance fish stocks in waters that don't have enough natural recruitment to sustain a fishery. CBF practices are usually applied in small water bodies such as village dams and irrigation reservoirs. Fish growth is driven by the natural productivity of the waters, foraging on natural food supplies.

Food security remains a serious problem in many developing countries, particularly at this time of global crisis. By harnessing the natural productivity of rural ecosystems CBF practices can help farmers to improve their food and nutritional security, and generate additional income. The simplicity and low capital requirements of CBF make it easy for farming communities to learn and adopt.
