Business partnerships sought to scale-up new aquaculture technology

  • Overview

    Project objectives

    Aquaculture is the fastest growing animal-food producing sector worldwide. Copper alloy netting improves fish production, leading to healthier fish, higher yields, and lower costs. In addition, copper netting:
    •Resists storm damage and lasts longer than traditional netting.
    •Reduces predator attacks and fish escapes.
    •Stays naturally clean, reduces drag and maintains cage volume.
    •Decreases impact of pathogens and parasites, as monitored by farmers.
    •Supports sustainable fish farming and is 100% recyclable.
    •Minimizes maintenance cost and efforts.

    Current progress

    ICA has been actively participating in a new UN initiative designed to accelerate global use of energy-efficient appliances. The first joint Project Steering Committee meeting of the en.lighten initiative and the new United for Efficiency, U4E, initiative was held on 15 May 2015 at the Global Environment Facility’s (GEF) headquarters in Washington D.C. Both initiatives serve as the accelerators on lighting (en.lighten) and appliances (U4E) for the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) initiative of the UN Secretary-General.
