IX. Staff Summary

The Pond Dynamics/Aquaculture CRSP represents the joint efforts of more than 60 professional and support personnel from U.S. universities. It also represents the collaborative efforts of over 75 scientists, technicians, and graduate students from project sites in three host countries. The expertise of host country and U.S. personnel is broad-based and encompasses the major fields of specialization included in this CRSP: Limnology and Water Quality; Fisheries and Aquaculture; Soil Science; Sociology; Data Management, Analysis, and Modeling; Sociology; Biotechnology; Agricultural Economics; and Research Administration.

The program's United States-based personnel is drawn from each of the partcipating institutionsthe University of California at Davis, Oregon State University, Auburn University, the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, the University of Hawaii, and The University of Michigan.

The CRSP regularly collaborates with other groups and institutions in the development of host country projects. For example, in northeast Thailand, the CRSP supports the outreach efforts of the Asian Institute of Technology by providing the research component for an adaptive management system. In Egypt, researchers from institutions such as the Institute of National Planning and Al Azhar University are interested in the implications of CRSP research for planning the future direction of Egyptian aquaculture development. While the CRSP operated in Rwanda, our researcher advised the Aquaculture Strategy Commission of the Ministry of Agriculture on establishing research priorities and suitable research-extension linkages. Researchers also met with the USAID/Kigali Mission and personnel from the Natural Resources Management Project to advise on natural resource issues. Numerous private voluntary organizations take advantage of the training offered by the CRSP. Peace Corps volunteers in Honduras consult with CRSP researchers on project design and implementation. Private sector farmers in Honduras and Thailand take advantage of CRSP expertise through seminars conducted by resident and visiting researchers. While these trainees are not formally part of the CRSP staff, they enhance the outreach ability of the CRSP by transmitting CRSP technologies and information.
