Re: The Role of Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture for Food Security and Nutrition - E-consultation to set the track of the study

Asian food securuty due to many reasons is bound with water and both cultured and capturured marine resources are important in ensuring economy. Yet the big question remains: Is this income contributing to food security and nutritional security? For an example small scale shrimp aquaculture farmers in Sri Lanka directly imports their product and they do not use it for their consumption and income is mostly invested for next years farming. Any excess is invested on education of young generations and building up financial assets for the young as both are considered as duties of parents.
