    In rural areas of Africa, animal protein is often in short supply and therefore lacking in the diet. Fish is a high-protein and highly appreciated food item, but fresh fish is frequently difficult to obtain. The importance of fish and other aquatic products is widely recognized, and development programmes have devoted much effort to stimulating increased production of these products. Many of these efforts have targeted aquaculture, including culture-based fisheries, as a means of increasing fish availability.

    This document is the report of the implementation of the project “Aquaculture Demonstration for Small-Scale Fisheries Development, Phang Nga, Thailand” during its first phase, March 1979 to September 1981. A short account of the project’s background, objectives, modus operandi and pre-operational activities is followed by a description and assessment of each component of the project - aquaculture demonstration, community development and the women component. It shows that cockle culture is the most successful aquaculture activity, while the commercial feasibility of finfish cage culture and oyster culture and the technical feasibility of mussel culture are yet to be established. The achievements of the community development component and the extensive training activities under each project component are also highlighted in the report. The report is based on the work of Mr. Boon Boonruang, Senior Fishery Biologist (team leader of the project) under the supervision of Mr. Vanich Varik ul, Director of the Brackishwater Fisheries Division of the Department of Fisheries, Thailand (Project Director) and the South China Sea Fisheries Development and Coordinating Programme. On behalf of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP), technical support for the execution of the project was provided to the Department of Fisheries, Thailand by the South China Sea Fisheries Development and Coordinating Programme (SCSP). Consequent to a joint review of the project, carried out at the end of the first phase, in which representatives of the Thailand Department of Fisheries, BOBP and SCSP participated, agreement for the support of a second phase of the project was reached between the Department and BOBP.
