The 2023-2029 UDSM-Sida Marine Sciences Project entitled “Capacity Building in Marine Sciences for Transforming Communities as Blue Economy Beneficiaries (Marine Science for Blue Growth; MSBG)” aims to consolidate postgraduate training and research-based innovation capacity. It is designed to promote (i) gender inclusiveness in fisheries and aquaculture for sustainable development, (ii) greening aquaculture via technologies for disease prevention, fish meal replacement and efficient water use, (iii) sustainable fisheries through fish restocking, marine spatial planning for enhanced governance, remote sensing and smart gears for green capture fisheries, and (iv) better management of blue carbon sinks. Collaborative problem-based research and research training will involve experts from the University of Dar es Salaam, Stockholm University and Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.
