The Chamber of Aquaculture Ghana and the Blue Food Partnership have partnered to ensure sustainable aquaculture in Ghana

The Chamber of Aquaculture Ghana and the Blue Food Partnership of the World Economic Forum have entered into a partnership to ensure sustainable aquaculture in Ghana.

Karen Demavivas, the overall lead of the Blue Food Partnership, says since 2021, the Blue Food Partnership has been driving science-based initiatives aimed at fostering sustainable and nutritious blue food value chains, particularly focusing on aquaculture.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Farmed Blue Food Festival, spearheaded by the Chamber of Aquaculture Ghana, Demavivas emphasised the partnership’s commitment to catalysing science-based action in aquaculture.

Demavivas underscored the collaborative efforts of over 50 global stakeholders and partners in developing a global sustainable aquaculture roadmap.

According to her, this roadmap aims to foster responsible production practices and improve livelihoods within the aquaculture sector.

“The Blue Food Partnership has been focused on driving sustainable and healthy blue food value chains, with a particular emphasis on aquaculture,” stated Demavivas.

Jacob Adzikah, the Chief Executive Officer of the Chamber of Aquaculture, echoed these sentiments, explaining the importance of taking aquaculture promotion to the next level.

Adzikah outlined key areas of focus, including sustainable sourcing, production, and consumption of farmed fish products.

“The Farmed Blue Food Festival serves as a platform to showcase innovations and initiatives aimed at promoting sustainability in aquaculture,” remarked Adzikah. “We are committed to ensuring that aquaculture contributes to food security, economic development, and environmental sustainability.”

The event brought together stakeholders from across the aquaculture industry, including policymakers, researchers, producers, and consumers. Discussions centered on innovative approaches to addressing challenges and seizing opportunities in sustainable aquaculture.
