Climate-adapted livelihoods and nutrition with Artemia in Bangladesh
Bangladesh is one of the most climate challenged nations in the world, with Cox’s Bazar along its coast particularly vulnerable. The region produces 95 percent of the salt in Bangladesh but provides only minimal incomes to some 1.5 million people working in the industry. Fish farming in the region also struggles with poor productivity. This leaves many unable to attain fruitful livelihoods and access to healthy food. To address these interlinked challenges, WorldFish introduced Artemia or brine shrimp pond culture through the Artemia4Bangladesh project.
