Aquaculture: a big role in terms of food security

A major international initiative has been launched to better understand the role of aquaculture in food security in poor countries. Bringing together a global alliance of development agencies, governments and universities, the initiative will help low-income food-deficit countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America to develop sustainable policies for improving the livelihoods of millions of poor people.
The European Union (EU) is funding the three-year project with one million Euros, which is managed by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in partnership with a global alliance of 20 development agencies, governments and universities, the UN agency said in a statement Monday.
Fish is the primary source of protein for 17 percent of the world's population - nearly 25 percent in low-income food-deficit countries.
