The Title XII Collaborative Research Support Program (CRSP) in Pond

Dynamics and Aquaculture Is a coordinated international effort to develop

aquacultural technology as a means of confronting food and nutritional

problems. The program is partially supported by a U.S. Agency for International

Development (AID) grant awarded in August

-1982, under the authority

of the International Development and Food Assistance Act of

1975 (P.L. 94-161).

Oregon State University is the Management Entity for the CRSP and has

technical, administrative and fiscal responsibi

1 ity for the performance of grant provisions.
The Pond Dynamics/Aquaculture CRSP was envisioned as a cohesive program
of collaborative research to be carried out in selected less developed

countries (LDCs), with a component of basic research to be carried out at

participating U.S. universities. The U.S. institutional participants are

Auburn University, the University of California at Davis, and the Consortium

for International Fisheries and Aquaculture Development (CIFAD). CIFAD, in

turn, represents five universities: the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff,

the University of Hawaii, the University of Michigan, Michigan State University

and Oregon State University. As a result of program planning activities

undertaken prior to the formal establishment of the CRSP, eight developing

countries were identified as potential participants in the program.
