WorldFish works in the Barotse Floodplain of western Zambia where its research focuses on testing improved fish processing technologies and social innovations to reduce post-harvest losses and improve gender relations throughout the fishery value chain. In Northern Province, WorldFish collaborates with HarvestPlus and the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) to implement a research in development project with development partners Self Help Africa and several line ministries. WorldFish provides technical support at Misamfu Aquaculture Research Station in Kasama to improve fingerling production and distribution channels, is testing improved fish feeds with rural women, men and youth in Luwingu and Mbala Districts, and developing and testing fish-based food products for rural and urban poor consumers.
