The course, the first of a proposed series of training courses, of fered basic tools to initiate small but productive aquaculture ventures to aid in facilitating food security and additional income to farmers and indigenous communities (Quichua, Shipibo and Cocama) of the Amazon region. To ensure sustainability, various native Amazonian plant products (fruits, foliage and agriculture byproducts) were promoted as sources of food for plant-eating fishes (e.g., Colossomids). The next training course will be held at the same location (IIAP–Quistococha) from 25-30 August 2002.
