Aquaculture of PNG Fish: A Scientific Perspective

From Violence to Growth: Joshua Noiney’s Revolutionary Fish Farming Initiatives in Papua New Guinea

Joshua Noiney, a master’s student at UNSW Sydney since 2017, has made remarkable contributions to the fisheries industry in Papua New Guinea (PNG). With his strong background in PNG fisheries, he has implemented technology and training programs that have revolutionized fish farming in the country.

Through fish farming, Mr. Noiney has brought positive change to communities affected by violence. By providing opportunities and resources for fish farming, he has seen individuals redirect their lives towards growth and community development.

Professor Sammut’s projects, in collaboration with UNSW Sydney and various agencies, NGOs, governments, local schools, prisons, and communities in both Australia and PNG, have led to significant growth in the fish farming industry in PNG. The interdisciplinary teams from both countries work together as equals to enhance the livelihoods of individuals through fish farming. This collaborative effort has been instrumental in the success of the projects.

As a result of these initiatives, the number of fish farms in Papua New Guinea has increased from 11,000 in 2009 to over 70,000 farms in 2023. The foundation laid by these projects has not only transformed the fish farming industry but also contributed to the overall well-being of communities in Papua New Guinea.
