Responsible Aquaculture Development and Management (FishFarm)
 Aquaculture is seen not only as having greater development potential than capture fisheries, but also as an important tool for increasing food security and alleviating poverty. Realization of the potential for aquaculture production will, however, depend on the resolution of a number of critical constraints. FishFarm has the overall objective of improving rural livelihoods and food security through development and implementation of responsible aquaculture and management practices, including strengthened institutional and legal arrangements, in accordance with priority action areas identified by the COFI Sub-Committee on Aquaculture.
