Planning and Policy for Coastal Aquaculture Development
Only available on loan from the National Sea Grant Library
Peterson, S.
In: Proceedings of the International Symposium on Utilization of Coastal Ecosystems: Planning, Pollution and Productivity 21-27 Nov. 1982, Rio Grande, Brazil, Vol. 1, pp. 301-312, 1985 WHOI-R-85-015
Successful aquaculture development in coastal areas depends upon wise planning and a careful balance of resources, institutions, regulations, and policies. This paper reviews aquaculture development, describes constraints on coastal aquaculture development, focusing on pollution, land use problems, and institutions needed to support aquaculture development, and describes government planning and policies important to successful aquaculture development. Determining the feasibility of aquaculture development demands that certain types of information about the natural, social, and economic setting be made available to federal and/or regional government representatives. Ideally, the setting in which aquaculture can flourish is the result of government policies which reflect national interests interpreted appropriately for each region of the country. The paper concludes that aquaculture in coastal areas has certain risks associated with it which can be reduced by a careful balance of resources management, education, research, institutional development, and regulations.

Allocation of Aquaculture Resources

Peterson, S.
In: Smith, L.J. and S. Peterson (eds.), Aquaculture Development in Less Developed Countries: Social Economic and Political Problems, pp. 21-29, 1982 WHOI-R-82-020
The production of food by aquaculture involves many dubious assumptions about man and nature. Descriptions of aquaculture systems abound: almost without exception, they bear on the technological aspects of development and ignore discussion of feasibility of development. Between the two questions of "Can it be done?" and "Should it be done?"--the first technical and the second political--lies a series of questions about methods used to choose and establish an aquaculture system. These intermediate questions have seldom been asked, although they have been approached from a number of directions. Lawson (1974) has used cost/benefit analysis on aquaculture systems, Alexander (1975) has done social impact studies on improved fishing technology, and Kloke and Potaras (1975) have looked at aquaculture as it integrates with other forms of resource exploitation. Peterson and Smith (1979) raise two issues which fall into this middle ground. The first issue, and perhaps most controversial, is wetland valuation (Burbridge 1978). Successful aquaculture development in areas formerly considered of little or no value, such as swamp or marsh, can cause the land to accrue value rapidly. For areas where title or ownership were uncertain before development, a second set of problems is provoked: argument, feud, and litigation. Since many of the world's wetlands are common property, transfer of land from public ownership to private holdings by a family or cooperative may demand changes in land use policy in both developing and developed countries. The purpose of this paper is to address another of those intermediate questions„ the question of allocation. The allocation question involves distribution of the products of aquaculture systems and the technology needed to establish them.

Elements in Evaluating Success and Failure in Aquaculture Projects
Only available on loan from the National Sea Grant Library
Pollnac, R.B., S. Peterson, and L.J. Smith
In: Smith, L.J. and S. Peterson (eds.), Aquaculture Development in Less Developed Countries: Social Economic and Political Problems, pp. 131-143, 1982 WHOI-R-82-019
During the decade since 1970, several hundred aquaculture projects have been developed with agency, foundation, government, or private industry funding. This paper uses examples from projects in Latin America and Africa to describe general requirements of aquaculture development, decision points in a development project, and evaluations of success and failure by the personnel from funding agencies.
