PREFACE

This document records the recommendations of the 18th Meeting of the Advisory Committee of the Bay of Bengal Programme for Fisheries Development (BOBP), held 16-19 April 1994, in Furana Fushi, Maldives.

The document contains the annual reports (or status reports) of the projects in the Programme. These reports briefly recapitulate the objectives and status of the activities, describe the work and achievements during 1993 and assess the progress that was made. Work plans for 1994, where applicable, have been indicated. The reports were prepared at the end of 1993 and presented to the 18th Meeting of the Advisory Committee.

The Advisory Committee is composed of member countries, agencies funding BOBP projects, and the FAO. The Committee meets once a year in member-countries on a rotational basis.

The Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP) is a multiagency regional fisheries programme which covers seven countries around the Bay of Bengal - Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Sri Lanka and Thailand. The Programme plays a catalytic and consultative role: it develops, demonstrates and promotes new technologies, methodologies and ideas to help improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk communities in member countries. The BOBP is sponsored by the governments of Denmark, Sweden and the United Kingdom, and also by UNDP (United Nations Development Programme). The main executing agency is the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations).
