WorldFish, a member of the CGIAR Consortium, is an international, nonprofit research organization. CGIAR is a global partnership that unites organizations engaged in research for a food secure future. CGIAR research is dedicated to reducing rural poverty, increasing food security, improving human health and nutrition, and ensuring more sustainable management of natural resources. It is carried out by the 15 centers who are members of the CGIAR Consortium in close collaboration with hundreds of partner organizations, including national and regional research institutes, civil society organizations, academia, and the private sector.
 
WorldFish is committed to meeting two key development challenges: 1) improving the livelihoods of those who are especially poor and vulnerable in places where fisheries and aquaculture can make a difference and 2) achieving large scale, environmentally sustainable, increases in supply and access to fish at affordable prices for poor consumers in developing countries.
 
To meet these challenges our research focuses on generating and synthesizing knowledge which we then share and help apply.
 
From new syntheses and analysis to targeted, on the ground delivery and knowledge sharing, our technologies, products and services help to make development happen while learning how to do it better. With more than 353 scientists and staff based in 8 countries across Asia, Africa and the Pacific we work in more than 19 countries around the world. Currently our regional or country offices are in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Egypt, Malawi, Malaysia (HQ), Philippines, Solomon Islands, and Zambia.
 
WorldFish’s mission touches the lives of millions of people whose lives and livelihoods depend on fish. We are proud of our role in reducing poverty and increasing food and nutrition security through fisheries and aquaculture.

The WorldFish strategy is the roadmap that defines how we will achieve our objectives. It defines the nature of the work we do, the geographical regions where we will be active, the attributes that differentiate us within the research for development arena, the methods we use, the timeline we anticipate, and how we will mobilize the necessary financial resources.
 
It is underpinned by our mission and vision-our fundamental purpose and aspirations as an organization-and it is aligned with the strategic objectives of the CGIAR. It takes into account the key socio-political, environmental, and institutional changes currently affecting our working environment.
