Only at the end of the 20th century was a Viking ship first seen along the Mozambique coast. This traditional model was constructed in the Matola Training Centre by student carpenters under the supervision of a Danish constructor. - - Marine Fishery Training, Quality Control and Development, Phase II. Fisheries has traditionally been only a minor element in the economy of Mozambique. However, the UN Development Programme and UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) have been working with the Government on a long-term plan to improve the country's fisheries and, in January 1983, continued into Phase II of the project. Increasing local technical manpower for the fishing fleet continues to be a major goal with the addition, as of 1982, of improving the inspection and quality control of selected export fish products. The project hopes to give trainees the basic technical knowledge and skills to begin a career in the fishing industry. Ultimately, besides increasing the value of fisheries products for export, a greater supply of fish for consumption by the Mozambique population is expected to be achieved. The project will continue under FAO's special Agricultural Rehabilitation Programme for Africa (ARPA), launched in 1985 to assist 25 African countries.
