    This document is the Report of the Second FAO/Swedish Training Centre on Small Fishing Boat Design and Construction, which was held at Entebbe, Uganda, from 11 January to 6 March 1971, sponsored by the Swedish International Development Authority. The Training Centre consisted of a Boatbuilding Course and a Seminar for Fisheries Officers. In the Boatbuilding Course 20 boatbuilders from Kenya (6), Tanzania (6), Uganda (7) and Malawi (1) were trained in low-cost construction techniques in wood and ferro-cement. The emphasis was on practical boatbuilding. Two wooden boats were completed and launched: a 9.3 m boat based on the lines of the traditional canoe, adapted for outboard motor propulsion, and a 7.5 m boat with an 8 hp inboards diesel engine. The hull of a 12.6 m trawler built of ferro-cement was constructed up to the stage of engine installation and decking. The Uganda Fisheries Department was in charge of completion of this boat and covered the cost of the engine. The boat was launched at the end of January 1972 and has completed successful trials. Two similar boats will be built for an FAO/DANIDA Fishermen’s Training Centre. The Seminar for Fisheries Officers was held at the Fisheries Training Institute, Entebbe, 22-27 February 1971 with 37 participants from Kenya, Nigeria, Sudan, Uganda, FAO and industry. Eighteen papers on various aspects of fishing boat development in the Lake Victoria region were presented and will be published separately together with th e recorded discussions. The importance of the traditional boatbuilder was stressed in papers and during the discussion, as eas the necessity of integrating boatbuilding training in a master plan for the introduction of new boat types, provision of credit and fishermen’s training.

    Chilled seawater systems are a comparatively recent innovation. The Consultant was familiar with progress made on the Pacific coast of Canada where the development of systems for salmon and herring transport and storage has been intensive and CSW systems are now the most common method for short-term preservation of fish. Several attempts were made to introduce the handling of sardine and mackerel in shallow plastic boxes, which is the standard procedure in the Mediterranean sardine industry, and quality results were excellent. This method of handling did not, howeve~ prove practical for commercial use since the fishermen are used to handling in bulk and on deck. Moreover, refrigerated seawater systems were unfeasible not only as the capital cost was prohibitive for installation in the small vessels (30-45 ft), but also because they presented technical problems of maintenance and operation beyond the capabilities of the fishermen. Thus, it appeared that a chilled seawater system would i deally suit the present conditions of the growing purse seine industry of southwest India

    The Expert Consultation on Low-cost Fisheries Management Strategies and Cost Recovery was held in Georgetown, Guyana, from 4 to 7 September 2007. The purpose of the Expert Consultation was to generate practical guidance regarding the range of funding arrangements that are available for funding fisheries management as part of FAOs ongoing efforts to assist countries in the implementation of the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries. The result is recommendations and guidance a s well as coverage of the discussions regarding key components of successful fisheries management regimes, the means to fund and deliver fisheries management services, and the different ways to put these practices into effect. This document also includes the extensive background documentation prepared for the Expert Consultation about the best practices in sustainable, effective and cost effective fisheries management as well as six case studies expanding on how different countries finance fisheries management.
