A compelling confluence of market demand, abundant natural resources and an early-stage industry with potential for large scale job creation
Aquaculture, the farming of fish and other aquatic organisms, is the fastest growing food sector globally. Farmed fish has the potential to fill the world’s rapidly growing protein gap more sustainably than any other traditional sources of animal protein.
It can create hundreds of thousands of jobs and improve incomes in the region.
The natural resources required for aquaculture such as clean fresh water, are in abundance
Commercial aquaculture in the region is young but the private sector shows dynamism and a keenness to invest.
There is increasing political buy-in.
There are strong opportunities for technology transfer and innovation.
"Aquaculture, not the internet, represents the most promising investment opportunity of the 21st Century"
