Instituto Costarricense de Pesca y Acuicultura
The Insituto Costarricense de Pesca y Acuicultura (INCOPESCA) needed to confirm the information they had on record about trout farms in the southern highland region of Costa Rica. Our project goal was to gather economic, environmental, and technical data to characterize the trout farms. In addition, we made recommendations to increase the efficiency of trout farming and to improve the role of INCOPESCA as a government organization. In order to increase trout farmers‟ productivity, we supplied them with a basic technical manual. We found that INCOPESCA was having difficulties supplying the assistance that the trout farmers needed, and that trout farmers were having difficulties farming without consistent aid from INCOPESCA.
