Freshwater Fisheries: Program Planning. Appropriate Technologies for Development. Manual M-1A.
This document is designed for policymakers, program planners, trainers, and coordinators who are considering the potential contribution of fresh water fisheries to the people for and with whom they work. Although based on materials generated by Peace Corps experiences, the document is intended for a broader audience. The specific topic area addressed is intensive fishculture in warm, fresh water bodies and particularly in artificially constructed fishponds. The first section is devoted to feasibility determinants for establishing intensive fishculture programs. Findings and recommendations resulting from a fisheries program feasibility survey carried out in the Bandundu Region of the Republic of Zaire are included. Following sections review: (1) Peace Corps involvement in a number of fishculture programs in Togo, India, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Central and South America, Nepal, and the Philippines; (2) tasks undertaken to meet fishculture program goals in these countries; (3) criteria (job skills) that host countries request volunteers to have; and (4) training objectives for fisheries workers. In addition, criteria for assessing intensive fishculture programs and a list of resources are included. (JN)
