At the end of a meeting on aquaculture in rural economy, the specialists said that Covid-19 insights should encourage reforms towards a more resistant sector to promote both efficient companies and decent work.

During the meeting, which gathered representatives of governments, employers and workers, it was specified that sustainable model contributes significantly to winding down poverty and famine in many vulnerable rural communities. It currently constitutes an important source of livelihoods and food for many, registering at least 20.5 million people working in primary aquaculture production and many more in the supply chain.

According to ILO, due to global population growth and environmental pressures, aquaculture has the potential to sustainably meet the food and nutrition security challenges.

“Sustainable and inclusive growth of the aquaculture industry could be more beneficial in increasing incomes and livelihoods of many rural communities, and contributing to the efforts to decrease poverty.”
