Project Overview

The lack of fish farming development projects is causing shortages of fish and health problems in children and pregnant mothers who require this source of protein. The main problem is high level of malnutrition, low rate of employment and consequently high level of poverty. One of the expected results of the project is to increase the supply of fish to satisfy food demand by the use of water in ponds, contributing to food security policy promoted by the Government, redu...

The lack of fish farming development projects is causing shortages of fish and health problems in children and pregnant mothers who require this source of protein. The main problem is high level of malnutrition, low rate of employment and consequently high level of poverty. One of the expected results of the project is to increase the supply of fish to satisfy food demand by the use of water in ponds, contributing to food security policy promoted by the Government, reducing pressure on fishery resources in natural ecosystems and to provide alternatives for economic development in families.

Main Activities:

  • Preparation of diagnosis of benefi ciaries - VII stage
  • Construction of 1.1 hectares of ponds for 6 bene ficiaries
  • Production of fi ngerlings of the species Colossoma Macropomum "gamitana" and Piaractus Brachypomus "paco", by artifi cial propagation
  • Production of fi sh meat in benefi ciaries
  • Attention with fingerlings and balanced feed Formalization of producers into the Production Regional Direction of Ucayali

Currently in the province of Padre Abad, there is a shortage of fish and a low rate of protein consumption, because the fish population has decreased considerably in natural bodies of water, as a result of pollution, use of non-selective fi shing practices without respecting the minimum sizes of capture and indiscriminate fishing with toxins and explosives. This problem is intensifi ed between the months of December to April, therefore, the identi ed problem is the "limited capacity of fish production in the districts of Irazola, Neshuya and Curimaná", which is caused by the scarce of operational aquaculture infrastructure, scarce of training and technical assistance to producers, insu cient nancial resources to promote sh farming and weak level of organization of producers.

Project Results

  • Construction of 1.1 Ha of ponds for pisciculture
  • Production of 200,000 fingerlings and 64,500 boquichico
  • Production of 5,745 kg of sh meat (paco and boquichico)
  • Production of 22,742 ok of sh meat from older bene ciaries
  • Attention to 16,000 fi ngerlings and 8,460 kg of balanced meal
  • Registration of 6 small producers into Regional Production Direction
