Feed the Future (FTF) is the U.S. Government’s (USG) global hunger and food security initiative. Funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the FTF Innovation Lab for Fish (Fish Innovation Lab or FIL) has the overarching goal of alleviating poverty and improving nutrition through the reliable provision of fish as an animal protein source.

The aquaculture and fisheries sectors are important to global food security because:

  • Fish provide high-quality animal protein and micronutrients, including vitamins A, B12, zinc, iron, and selenium. In many of the FTF countries, fish are the primary source of animal protein; thus, increased consumption of fish and/or fish products has potential to reduce childhood stunting and improve brain development and function.
  • Fish are one of the most widely traded agricultural commodities worldwide; thus, increased trade (local and regional) has potential to improve livelihoods and increase incomes.
  • Aquaculture and fisheries provide formal and informal employment opportunities for women and youth.
  • Aquaculture enables diversification of farming systems through opportunities such as integrated aquaculture, providing increased economic resilience for producers.
