CENTRAL FISHERIES RESEARCH INSTITUTE. Zambia, 1970.
The purpose of the four-year project is to assist the Government in continuing the work of the research Institute located at Chilanga, ten miles from Lusaka. Included in the Institute's activities are research into commercial fish species, populations and environment; studies in the development of fishing gear and methods, and in-service training. These activities are being extended to all of Zambia's major lakes and rivers through the establishment of field stations from which fishermen and processors are advised on methods of freezing and smoking fish for transport to market. The UN Development Programme has allocated just over US$ one million to the project (executed by FAO), and the Government is making a counterpart contribution in kind of US$1,250,700.
