Analytical framework for rethinking aquaculture development for smallholder farmers.

A framework for a new type of analytical approach to aquaculture development is presented. It focuses onsmallholder farmers in the context of their environment and managed natural resources, and considers experiences gained in past initiatives; makes extensive use of existing information from previous studies; employs a participatory approach and bases work on partnership among farmers, researchers and extensionists: (both government and/or nongovernment organizations) in field trials. Data analysis results in conclusions and suggestions for implementation and necessary policy and investment requirements.
