Global NGO WorldFish recently signed an agreement with the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad) to develop low-cost and nutritious aquatic feeds based on novel ingredients.

The agreement will enable 5,000 seafood producers in Kenya, Nigeria and Zambia to test and use these feeds and ingredients, which will increase their income, improve their nation’s food security and reduce waste and pollution.

An estimated 30 to 40 percent of aquatic food producers engaged in the project will be women and young adults.
