The purpose of this publication is to document the

development of a successful small-scale aquaculture

project in Guatemala that was funded by the U.S.

implemented by the General Directorate for

Animal Husbandry (DlGESEPE) of the Guatemalan

Ministry of Agriculture, the Cooperative for American

in Guatemala and other countries with similar
