Welcome to the Malawi Fisheries Digital Repository

This digital repository is sponsored by the Fisheries Integration of Society and Habitats Project (FISH) which is funded with the generous support of the American people through USAID and implemented by Pact. The Malawi Fisheries Digital Repository is a digital service that collects, preserves, and distributes digital material generated primarily about fisheries and aquaculture. This repository is meant to increase the use of science, analysis, and information for decision-making, research and education. It is an online freely accessible tool and database for anyone seeking fisheries related information including other materials that may be difficult to access, for example, so-called grey literature which may not have been fully accredited for international journal publication but nevertheless is very informative for the advancement of fisheries and aquaculture, The repository contains over 3,600 entries of bibliographic citations, article abstracts, links to article and book locations, and downloaded scientific papers and journal articles. The intention is for the repository to grow with opportunities for users to upload their own articles through a moderated facility. There are further plans to link the repository more widely to the region and if possible, to continental and global web-based databases. The University of Rhode Island (URI) and The Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR) were core to the creation and management of this digital repository. If you experience any issues with the site, contact If you have challenges with links to any of the resources or have suggestions of resources to add to the digital repository, please contact Mr. Geoffrey Salanje at

The Fisheries Integration of Society and Habitats (FISH) Project

The Fisheries Integration of Society and Habitats Project (FISH) is a five year, USAID funded project implemented by Pact from September 2014 to September 2019. FISH is implemented in collaboration with the University of Rhode Island (URI), Christian Aid (CA), the Community Initiative for Self-Reliance (CISER), the Center for Environment Policy and Advocacy (CEPA), Emmanuel International (EI), and the Wildlife and Environment Society of Malawi (WESM). The primary objectives of FISH are to increase resiliency to climate change and improve biodiversity conservation through effective sustainable fisheries co-management. The four outputs that contribute to these objectives include (1) the utilization of science, analysis, and information for decision making increased (2) the enabling environment for conservation and management of freshwater ecosystems enhanced (3) the priority threats to freshwater ecosystem biodiversity reduced and (4) the adoption of climate change adaptation measures that support resilience of communities.
