Abstract
  • In aquaculture and fisheries, the value chain consists of all the various processes and activities involved in bringing fish, shellfish, and aquatic plants to market. In some regions it can be an indicator of the economic welfare of poor communities involved in small-scale operations. In order to maximize smallholder participation and benefit in developing countries, it is critical to understand the complexities and intricate linkages of markets and value chains. This provides the foundation for proper value chain management and is a way to increase productivity by improving efficiency, opening access to new markets and value-added products, and tracking cons umer preferences. Researchers in the Aquaculture & Fisheries Collaborative Research Support Program (A quaFish CRSP) in Africa and Asia have been working on this topic, helping to provide market ac cess to small-scale fish producers, to improve local economies, and to create more opportunities for women. AquaFish CRSP, headquartered at Oregon State University, brings together resources from US and Host Country institutions to promote sustainable solutions in aquaculture and fisheries. This effort is accomplished through integrated, multidisciplinary partnerships, focusing on poverty alleviation in ta rget countries through the improvement of local and sustainable fish production. Within a large research portfolio, the work reported here on value chains is a key component of the AquaFish CRSP mission.
