About the FISH4ACP initiative

Over the past two decades, the fisheries and aquaculture sectors in Africa, the Caribbean, and the Pacific (ACP) regions have undergone significant evolution. The FISH4ACP initiative contributes to shaping vital economic lifelines for twelve member countries of the Organization of African, Caribbean, and Pacific States (OACPS). It is dedicated to enhancing productivity and competitiveness within twelve fisheries and aquaculture value chains, fostering sustainable development and prosperity within these nations.
