What’s the big deal about small fish

The Small Fish for Food project works on innovative integration of fish in African food systems to improve nutrition. Our international consortium collaborates to understand how socio-cultural, economic and institutional transformations of the fish food and value chain – from ecosystem to consumer – can contribute to improved, sustainable utilisation of small fish resources for Africa’s low-income population. Next to scientific research, our partners also test and examine technical and infrastructural innovations related to fish processing and marketing. The project is funded by LEAP AGRI, a joint Europe Africa research and innovation initiative related to food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture.
