Blue Growth

Building vibrant coastal communities

Fisheries and aquaculture support the livelihoods of communities around the world. Yet a growing population, an increasing demand for fish, environmental degradation and poor fisheries management practices can threaten these important aquatic resources.

Blue Growth is a strategic, innovative approach to improving the use of aquatic resources while simultaneously increasing social, economic and environmental benefits for communities dependent on fisheries and aquaculture.

Blue Growth, with its emphasis on employment and livelihoods, food security and nutrition, sound fisheries management practices and support to healthy ecosystems, places these communities at the heart of all its policies and activities.
