This Technical Report contains the results of two missions.  One mission deals with the state of fisheries and aquaculture research as well as research needs in four countries in Southeastern Africa:  Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.  Following an analysis of relevant criteria for evaluation fisheries and aquaculture research, an account is given of the factors affecting the effectiveness of research in the four countries covered by the mission and also more generally in subsaharan Africa.  A discussion of how such constraints could be addressed forms the subject matter of the next section.  The Report then provides a description of a successful fishery research institution in Mozambique and analyses the possible reasons for its success.  The comprehensive annexes provide the mission's country-specific findings.


The second mission report deals with fisheries and aquaculture research capabilities and usefulness in Northwest Africa:  Mauritania, Morocco and Senegal.  the report starts out with a description of the importance of northwest African fisheries for national objectivies.  Following this, the report deals with the ways and means of developing successful research.  General conclusions on the status of fisheries and aquaculture research as well as priority areas for international aid are also presented.
