A long-term project aimed to establish cold water fish farming in Northern and Central Vietnam. In cooperation with Research Institute for Aquaculture No1 (RIA-1) and Finnish Food Safety Authority, Luke helped in building a pilot farm and built local capacity to support sustainable growth of the sector.

The number of cold water fish farms has increased from zero to over one hundred, producing over two million kilos of fish. Currently, cold water fish farming employs 10,000–15,000 people in Vietnam directly or indirectly, bringing wealth to the region.
