FAO UNITED NATIONS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE) REPORTS ON FISHERIES
This document is Report No. TA 2446 in the series of FAO reports produced under the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). Since 1 January 1966, reports produced under the former Expanded Program of Technical Assistance (EPTA) have appeared in the UNDP(TA) series. The numbering of reports in the UNDP(TA) series is unbroken and follows consecutively the numbering of the former EPTA series.
Since 1 January 1962, those reports which concern FAO Technical Assistance in fisheries have been numbered consecutively in a sub-series within the general series. The numbering of reports in the UNDP(TA) sub-series on fisheries also remains unbroken and follows consecutively the numbering of the former EPTA sub-series of fisheries reports.
The present report is the one hundred and thirty-third report in the UNDP(TA) fisheries sub-series: FAO Fish. UNDP(TA) Rep., FRi/UNDP(TA) 133.
