Prince Charles had expressed his concern over major challenges in the fish agri-food system where a large percentage of fish caught in the oceans ends up as feed for fish farming.

The Prince of Wales expressed the concern during a visit to the Penang-based international research agency, WorldFish, according to WorldFish director Gareth Johnstone.

He said the Prince was interested in the work WorldFish did in the area of sustainable fish feed that did not draw on ocean resources and the institution\'s wider work towards achieving and contributing towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

\"The Prince has become a powerful voice in discussions on ocean sustainability and has long been a strong supporter of sustainable development, particularly in agriculture.

\"We have noted his words of support and many shared areas of interest and goals which will be an inspiration as we take forward our programmes to address global development challenges through fisheries and aquaculture,\" he told Bernama.
