AwF has been established for the specific purpose of promoting and supporting responsible and sustainable aquaculture to assist in poverty alleviation through improving rural livelihoods in developing and transition countries.


In its work, AwF draws on the experience of respected professionals from every relevant discipline.

AwF is unique in devoting all of its resources and attention to aquaculture; however, it does not seek to promote aquaculture in isolation, but as a component of integrated rural and coastal development plans, and of strategies to alleviate poverty.

This website is the home of the UK based Aquaculture without Frontiers (AwF).

There are a number of AwF’s in existence and each organisation is independent but operating under the common banner and aims of the charities original founder and our UK charity’s Patron, Mr. Michael New O.B.E. 

Additional to the UK there are currently AwF’s based in the USA, Australia and South America.
