A round-table meeting on “Research needs in aquaculture and culture-based fisheries in Zimbabwe” was held in Harare, Zimbabwe, on July 16, 1991. This document summarizes the consensus attained at the meeting. It also sets out the background to the meeting and reproduces in edited form the papers presented.
The meeting was organized at the initiative of two FAO-executed projects based in Harare: the national project "Support for rural aquaculture extension in Zimbabwe; and the regional programme ALCOM, “Aquaculture for Local Community Development Programme”, which covers the SADCC (Southern African Development Coordination Conference) region.
Twenty seven persons -- fisheries scientists and extension officials, fish farmers, and representatives from the two FAO projects -- attended the meeting.
ALCOM is an inter-regional programme that covers the SADCC (Southern African Development Coordination Conference) region. Its main goal is to develop, test and demonstrate strategies, methods and techniques by which rural populations can improve their living standards through aquaculture. Executed by FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) and funded by SIDA (Swedish International Development Authority), ALCOM began in 1990 for an initial duration of five years.
The project “Support for rural aquaculture extension”, seeks to accelerate aquaculture development in Zimbabwe by assisting institution-building and manpower development within AGRITEX. It is a three-year project executed by FAO and funded by UNDP and began in November 1989. Major project components are training, demonstration of appropriate techniques, direct support to extension activities in pilot zones, and assistance to national planning in aquaculture.
