The role and impact of ICLARM.

The International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM) is a new, small research organization, working in fisheries and aquaculture in the developing countries. The Center has four programmes: (1) traditional fisheries in which socioeconomic studies have had wide impact in the literature and have resulted in legislative change; (2) resource development and management, the principal accomplishment of which has been compilation of new microcomputer and calculator programmes for tropical stock assessment and their adoption in 12 countries to date; (3) aquaculture, with major biological and economic research being carried out in integrated farming systems, and on the most important tropical culture commodities, tilapias and carps; (4) education and training, in which major thrusts in new educational materials and specialized training are planned.
