INFORMATION COLLECTION & EXCHANGE

Peace Corps' Information Collection & Exchange (ICE) was established so that the strategies and technologies developed by Peace Corps Volunteers, their co-workers, and their counterparts could be made available to the wide range of development organizations and individual workers who might find them useful. Training guides, curricula, lesson plans, project reports, manuals and other Peace Corps-generated materials developed in the field are collected and reviewed. Some are reprinted ''as is"; others provide a source of field based information for the production of manuals or for research in particular program areas. Materials that you submit to ICE thus become part of the Peace Corps' larger contribution to development.

Information about ICE publications and services is available through:

The Peace Corps Internet Web Site address:

http://www.peacecorps.gov

Please note the new Peace Corps Mailing Address from July 1998 on is:

ICE/ Peace Corps
1111 20th Street N.W.
Washington, DC 20526
USA

Add your experience to the ICE Resource Center. Send materials that you have prepared so that we can share them with others working in the development field. Your technical insights serve as the basis for the generation of ICE manuals, reprints, and resource packets, and also ensure that ICE is providing the most up-to-date, innovative problem-solving techniques and information available to you and your fellow development workers.

This manual was prepared from materials included in the following two manuals:

Peace Corps Fish Culture Training Design Manual by Fran Lowell and Roger Palm at the University of South Carolina under Contract PC-287-1005, 1990.

This manual may be reproduced and/or translated in part or in full without payment or royalty. Please give standard acknowledgement.

DEDICATION

This manual is dedicated to Dr. Howard Paul and Effie Clemens. Without Doc's inspiration, insight, leadership and dedication Peace Corps would not have been able to make the contribution it has to international aquaculture development. He also inspired many of us to continue working in aquaculture and/or development after our Peace Corps service. As the saying goes, "Behind every good man is a good woman". Without Effie, Doc would not have accomplished all that he has. In anticipation of Doc and Effie's reaction to this dedication, the manual is also dedicated to the many past and present Peace Corps Volunteers and Staff who have contributed to the development of the training program described in this manual.
