A 15-day international workshop on fisheries and aquaculture was kicked offat CMFRI with a call to formulate game-changing policies to develop the sector in Afro-Asian countries.

The workshop is to train officials from 12 member countries of the African Asian Rural Development Organisation (AARDO).

Manoj Nardeo Singh, Assistant Secretary General of the AARDO said agriculture would need to produce 60 per cent more food globally by 2050 and 100 per cent more in developing countries using the same resources to meet demand. Fisheries and aquaculture can generate food, nutrition, income and livelihood.
