Aquaculture advancements: PNG fish farming explained in depth

Joshua Noiney, a master’s student at UNSW Sydney since 2017, has revolutionized the fisheries industry in Papua New Guinea (PNG) through his implementation of technology and training programs. Working alongside Professor Sammut, Mr. Noiney’s projects are part of a collaborative effort between UNSW Sydney, various agencies, NGOs, and governments in Australia and PNG. These projects aim to uplift lives and livelihoods by promoting sustainable fish farming practices, involving local schools, prisons, and communities.

Mr. Noiney has used fish farming as a tool to bring positive change to communities with a history of violence. The success of these projects can be seen in the significant growth of the fish farming industry in PNG from around 11,000 farms in 2009 to over 70,000 farms in 2023. This growth is a testament to the positive impact of the collaborative efforts of the teams involved as well as the dedication and innovation of individuals like Joshua Noiney. The multi-disciplinary teams from both countries work together as equals, emphasizing the importance of cooperation and partnership in achieving their goals.
