dc.description.abstractThis report provides the background, methodology and findings of a scoping study on dam-based fisheries and small-scale fish farming and consumption in the Eastern Province of Zambia. The aim of the study was to increase understanding of the current situation and the potential for improving sustainable fisheries and aquaculture for greater food and nutrition security. This report focuses mostly on dambased fisheries (capture and culture) and small-scale fish farming in six districts in the province: Chipata, Petauke, Lundazi, Katete, Sinda and Mambwe. The focus was on understanding of the current aquaculture and fisheries landscape and on the potential development pathways of increasing fish production, including for improved incomes and food and nutrition security. A focus on fish trading and consumption was therefore a key priority. Information was collected through key informant interviews with stakeholders and semi-structured interviews with fish farmers, fish traders and consumers. Focus group discussions with fish farmer cooperatives and dam management committees complemented the database. Fish production has high potential in the Eastern Province due to several reasons: there are many small water bodies (SWB) in the region and currently fish farming is entirely in the hands of smallscale farmers due to the absence of commercial aquaculture actors. Fish is an important source of food: small-scale producers consume the fish they produce in their family or market the fish within their own village locally. The report concludes with recommendations for development actors who are keen to engage in fish production in the province.eng
