BACKGROUND

WorldFish is an international, non-profit research organization that harnesses the potential of fisheries and aquaculture to reduce hunger and poverty. In the developing world, more than 1 billion poor people obtain most of their animal protein from fish and 250 million depend on fishing and aquaculture for their livelihoods. The WorldFish mission is to strengthen livelihoods and enhance food and nutrition security by improving fisheries and aquaculture. We pursue this through research partnerships focused on helping those who stand to benefit the most—poor producers and consumers, women and children.

Enhanced Coastal Fisheries in Bangladesh II (ECOFISH II) is an on-going project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Jointly implemented by WorldFish and the Department of Fisheries (DOF), ECOFISH II has been built upon the previous work of the original ECOFISH-BD project regarding hilsa shad and other coastal fish production in the Meghna River ecosystem.  ECOFISH II is working to reduce the impacts on the natural resources and fishing communities along the Teknaf–Cox’s Bazar peninsula from the influx of over a million Rohingya refugees. It is also reducing the impact of the Naf River fishing ban on host communities in Teknaf. ECOFISH II is scaling up lessons learned from the previous project while expanding interventions for improving the livelihoods of fishing communities and enhancing biodiversity conservation in the artisanal fisheries of the Bay of Bengal. The ongoing conservation activities in the lower Meghna sanctuaries and the improved management of the Nijhum Dwip marine protected area (MPA) are remained as integral parts of the project.
