Aquaculture is a growing industry in Costa Rica and a significant contributor to the nation's GDP. INCOPESCA monitors and promotes the development of this industry using a database in MS Excel, but recent industry expansion led to an increase in information that must be collected, making the database outdated. The purpose of this project was to create a new database in Microsoft Access to replace the original. Development of this database was accomplished through liaison interviews and user-testing of four INCOPESCA employees.
