Have Mangroves Been Overlooked for Their Potential to Support Food and Nutrition Security in Indonesia?

Project: Research

Project Details


Mangroves provide essential habitats for a range of aquatic foods (AQF), including finfish, invertebrates, and shellfish, as well as birds and tree products, such as fruit and leaves. AQF are nutrient-rich, primarily in micronutrients such as vitamin A, Calcium, Zinc, and Iron. Yet the contribution of mangrove systems to household food and nutrition security (FNS) is overlooked, despite the increasing recognition of the potential to boost nutrition, as most recent mangrove research has focused on conservation, management, and blue carbon.
