Inclusive aquaculture development course
March 18 – 29, 2019
Wageningen, The Netherlands
This course will focus on empowerment and professionalization of fish farmers' business organisations, with responsible and inclusive growth of the aquaculture sector as main objective.
On a global scale aquaculture has shown a steady growth in the past decades. The amount of fish and other seafood products for direct human consumption resulting from aquaculture is equal to the amount supplied by capture fisheries. Besides an increasing world population, the global demand for fish or aquatic products is also driven by a growing awareness of the positive impact of consumption of fish and other aquatic products on human health due to the presence of unsaturated fatty acids, micro-nutrients and high protein level.
Small fish farms constitute the majority of the world's small and medium aquaculture enterprises. This course perceives fish farmers as autonomous entrepreneurs (and not as target groups or beneficiaries), and their organisations as aquaculture business supporters.
The central question is how fish farmers, through collective action of their organisations, can better access inputs and credit, improve their production and yields in a sustainable way, manage the costs and quality of their products, create value through post-harvest operations and access more remunerative markets.
Main subjects in the course include, among others:
-- state-of-the-art of aquaculture: drivers, trends, challenges and opportunities;
-- position of small-scale aquaculture producers: perspectives and challenges; and
-- obtaining the required inputs and finance.
The course will be organised in cooperation with private companies and is to be held in Wageningen, the Netherlands.
