dc.description.abstractIn 1967 Kenya made a request for Norwegian assistance to develop the fisheries of Lake Turkana. A project was formulated and agreed and its first phase started in 1970. Norway provided financial and technical assistance to this project. During the first years personnel from the Norwegian Voluntary Service worked as advicers in boat-building and in the management of the Turkana Fishermen's Cooperative Society (TFCS). A fishing master conducted trial fishing. The project was equipped with a number of fishing boaus, one 36 ft. research vessel, fishing gear, tools for boat bUilding and some vehicles for the staff and the Society. The Society was also provided with some financial support. During these years the main efforts were directed towards building up the Turkana Fisheries Cooperative Society. In 1977 its monopoly over the fish sale from the fishermen and the further wholesale of processed fish was reinforced by the Kenya government. Rules and regulations for the fishing in the lake were also established in order to protect the fish resources against over­ fishing. In 1974 a Norwegian consultant recommended the establishment of a fish pro­ cessing plant at Lake Turkana. In 1975 the Government of Kenya submitted a request to Norway for assistance in building such a plant. In 1976 and 1977 NORAD carried out feasibility studies of a fish processing plant including evaluations of marketing conditions for the economics of frozen fish produc­ tion. The building of a plant with freezing facilities was recommended mainly on the basis that such an expansion would be economically beneficial to the TFCS. An agreement between Kenya and Norway concerning the building of a plant was signed in 1978. The project was to include a processing unit, storage facilities for frozen fish, refrigeration machinery, icemaking machinery, generators and other facilities. From 1977 NORAD provided a manager for the TFCS, from 1978 a fish-processing expert and from 1980 also a refrigeration machinery expert and a marketing expert. The building of the new factory started in May 1979 and will be completed during the first quarter of 1981.en_US
