>COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT:
>
>Seaweed mariculture for community development
>
>Organizers: International Ocean Institute
>Venue: University of the Western Cape, Bellville, Cape Town, South Africa
>
>Date: November 25 to December 15, 1998
>
>
>BACKGROUND
>Seaweed cultivation (mariculture) has considerable potential to contribute
to the economic
>development of  coastal communities in some rural areas. It has been used
successfully for
>this purpose in a number of  developing countries, for example, Philippines
and Tanzania.
> The seaweed Gracilaria gracilis is harvested from beach cast in a few
sheltered bays in South
> Africa. Recent studies by the Sea Fisheries Research Institute in Cape
Town have provided
> the technical basis for cultivation of this species. By taking the
information from the
> cultivation trials, and a variety of economic and environmental data, we
have shown the
> feasibility of farming this seaweed as a contributor to economic
development. However,
> research using test rafts is still needed before Gracilaria mariculture
can be developed on an
> economically feasible scale. With this in mind, we offered a course in
Seaweed Mariculture
> to community members in 1997, to enable them to take advantage of
opportunities should
>  mariculture of  Gracilaria prove feasible. The course was successful in
terms of skills
>transfer and community empowerment. We are now offering  a similar course
to interested
>persons from neighbouring countries. Focus will be on cultivation of
different types of
> seaweed as well as all possible  cultivation methods, the teaching of
basic business skills
> and teaching of project planning.
>
>OBJECTIVES
>. The objectives of the course are to disseminate knowledge and provide
training to enable
> rural development officers and members of coastal communities to
critically evaluate
> seaweed farming as an option for their area and if so, to implement a
seaweed farming
> project. Practical exercises will also be carried out.
>
>The topics to be covered include the following:
>. General background: seaweed mariculture
>. Seaweed biology for mariculture purposes
>. Laws, policies and water rights
>. Technical skills and requirements
>. The pre-feasibility and feasibility study
>. Business skills
>_ Cost analysis & profit margins
>_ Market sourcing and marketing
>_ Pre-processing and processing
>_ Quality control
>. Scope for community development
>. Management as a community enterprise
>
>
>The participants will be expected to do practical exercises in the area of
raft design and
> construction, observations on raft placement, the preparation of a
pre-feasibility plan
> for their area and target seaweed species, and cost analysis.
>
>
>WHO SHOULD DO THIS COURSE?
>REGIONAL PREFERENCE
>Access to the December course is open to people from neighbouring
countries, especially
> the following: Namibia, Angola, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Seychelles,
Mauritius,
> Reunion, Comoros and Madagascar. Rural development officers and resource
managers
> may benefit from the course, as may graduate students of rural development
and
>mariculture. Women are encouraged to apply. A total of 16 participants may
be accepted.
