INCOPESCA, San Jose, Costa Rica
The Instituto Costarricense de Pesca y Acuicultura (INCOPESCA) is a Costa Rican governmental organization that manages fisheries and works with aquaculturists. Since INCOPESCA currently has no training program for its extension agents, they have asked us, to help develop this program. To ensure that all issues and viewpoints were considered, we interviewed and surveyed aquaculturists, extension agents, and educators in Costa Rica. We used this information to determine the key obstacles to aquaculture and developed a training program for INCOPECSA'S extension agents based on methods of non-formal education that can be used to overcome these issues. These topics include feed, marketing, and equipment.
