Abstract

This mission was conducted under the ODA funded Post-Harvest Fisheries Project, a component project of the Bay of Bengal Programme. A survey of small trader fish marketing, initiated during a previous mission (Clucas and Bennett, 1991) was reviewed. This survey was conducted by local consultants (IRED) to characterise, in socio-economic terms, the present system and assess the likely impact of future interventions. The mission reported here consisted of a number of components. These included a review of the progress on the socio-economic base-line survey of bicycle traders in Colombo, assessment of a range of insulated fish boxes for bicycle traders, development of a strategy for dissemination of insulated fish box technology and identification of other possible target groups among itinerant fish traders who might be potential beneficiaries of future assistance. In addition the mission assessed the results of progress with ice meltage trials set up during the Clucas/Bennett mission and discussed the possibility of collaboration on research into biogenic amines in the fish distribution chain. The full terms of reference for the mission are given in as Annex V. The mission lasted approximately 2.5 weeks and included field surveys and discussions with relevant institutions. A full itinerary is at Annex VI.
