Feed the Future Bangladesh Aquaculture and Nutrition Activity is a five-year award by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to WorldFish to sustain positive aquaculture sector growth through an inclusive market system approach. The Activity aims to improve the sustainable livelihoods for a large number of smallholder farmers and other stakeholders linked to aquaculture value chains in USAID’s Feed the Future Zone of Influence (ZOI) and the Zone of Resilience (ZOR).

The Activity will stimulate aquaculture sector growth, increase employment and incomes, and improve food and nutritional security for households. It will serve a facilitating role by coordinating linkages among the value chain actors in the private, public, and civil society sectors of the country.
