FoodShot Global Prize Winner!

Our research lead, Alex Pounds has been awarded a Groundbreaker prize by FoodShot Global. The prize recognises Alex's wider research in East Africa and prize money has been awarded to ThinkAqua to develop RAD (Resilient Aquaculture Designs). Located in Rukungiri, Western Uganda, RAD was pioneered by Dr Tim Messeder and Pauson Mpabukire to provide fish farmers with a route to market for their farmed tilapia, along with the inputs needed for successful farming. ThinkAqua was an original partner of RAD and is supporting the scaling and replication of this pilot. Alex will conduct research on the impact of the model as we replicate with more hubs across East Africa, empowering 5000 farmers and ensuring nutritious fish becomes part of more than 24 million meals.
