For #ASEAN countries fish is a hugely important source of nutrition, also providing #income, opening up employment opportunities and alleviating poverty. #Fish trade represents an important source of foreign currency earnings for many developing countries. A new #WorldFish report, "Fish to 2050 in the ASEAN Region," produced in collaboration with the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) shows that #aquaculture is expected to supply more than half of the fish for consumption in the region in the coming decade. http://bit.ly/2kQELzX
