Egypt Project: Pond Dynamics/Aquaculture Collaborative Research Support Program -- Final Report October 1992-March 1995
While the primary focus of the Egypt project was collaborative research, institutional and professional development, and the establishment of new linkages were also of importance. It was also envisioned thai the Egypt project would act as a catalyst to propel the Abbassa facility to a prominent role in aquaculture research and training, and has been successful in these areas, too. Currently, CLAR is being considered as a new site for the International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM). The CRSP Egypt project supported through its Scholarly Exchange Program the professional development of Egyptian scientists by sponsoring 21 visits to laboratories and 12 visits to international conferences. Fourteen students, including eight working on advanced degrees, were supported by the Egypt Project. Over 160 individuals participated in CRSP sponsored workshops at CLAR. The CRSP Egypt project also assisted with facility improvement and maintenance, e.g. the renovation of experimental ponds and an overwintering facility.
