Webinar: Nigeria Fish Futures – 8 December 2021, Online

WorldFish, in collaboration with Aquaculture Africa Magazine, will gather research leaders, key investors and government ministers to launch a new book called ‘Nigeria Fish Futures’. The book highlights the role of fish and aquatic foods in sustainably feeding and nourishing Nigeria’s rapidly growing population.

During the webinar, WorldFish’s Technical Lead for Sustainable Aquaculture based in Nigeria, Rohana Subasinghe, will give an overview of the book, building on the current understanding of Nigeria’s emerging aquaculture sector and highlighting recommendations to enhance the nation’s food production systems through capacity building and aquaculture innovations.

Following that will be a panel discussion with key partners of the research publication, including USAID, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) and Nigeria Government’s Department of Fisheries (DoF). Together, they will explore the challenges and opportunities of making nutritious fish and aquatic foods more accessible and affordable to the rural poor and future investment plans to facilitate the inclusive growth of the aquaculture sector in Nigeria.
