Development of sustainable aquaculture project: progress report (1 April 2004 - 31 June 2004)

The Development of Sustainable Aquaculture Project (DSAP) was authorized and funded by USAID on 28 June 2000. This technical progress report covers activities for the three months of the project, 1 April 2004 through 30 June 2004. The main thrust of the Development of Sustainable Aquaculture Project is to sponsor on-farm aquaculture production demonstrations implemented through co-operating NGO partners. These demonstrations are expected to show farmers and their neighbors the profitability of managed aquaculture systems as small business enterprises. Both small ponds and integrated rice and fish systems, based on research-proven production results, are the target of these demonstrations. The Project also has a research component directed to understanding and exploring alternative production options, improving the technology dissemination process and monitoring the impact of the adopted aquaculture practices. This quarterly technical progress report covers (i) the annual evaluation of the associate-partner NGOs program, (ii) the analysis of the beneficiaries of the 2004/05 technology dissemination program (beneficiaries survey), (iii) collection of data of the performance survey 2003/04 (verification of pond record books), (iv) the selection for small research projects, (v) the implementation of the project assessment (or mid-term review) and (vi) the finalization of the Recipient Contracted Audit (RCA) 2000-2002.
