Abstract:

Following an official request on June 2011 from the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources (MFMR) of the Government of Namibia for technical assistance by the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department, Mohammad R. Hasan and Valerio Crespi (Aquaculture Officers, FIRA) undertook a seven-day scoping mission to Namibia under the South South Cooperation (SSC) Technical Assistance Programme between Namibia and Viet Nam (GCP/NAM/014/SPA) to identify developmental opportunities for the country in the fields of: (a) aquafeed production; (b) species diversification; and (c) aquaculture in the desert and arid lands. Two separate field missions were undertaken by the two FAO officers, i.e. to the northwest (aquafeed and species diversification, Mohammad R. Hasan) and to the south (desert aquaculture, Valerio Crespi) regions of the country where potential areas for aquaculture development as well as ongoing aquaculture projects were visited.
