Background: Hungary's Deputy Minister for Food and Agriculture, Mr. Kalman Kazareczky, on Tuesday (28 May) officially opened a new fish farm and research centre in the city of Szarvas, south of the capital, Budapest. The complex took three and a half years to design and build and was a joint project by the Hungarian Government and the Food an agriculture Organisation of the United Nations. It's hoped the project will contribute greatly to the FAO's World Food Programme.
The farm itself uses warm water from a nearby thermal power station. This means that many different types of fish, which could not survive under natural conditions, can be bread all year round.
The model farm is part of an international plan by the FAO to promote better methods of fish breeding. In this way, developing countries will be able to modernise their methods and thus help solve their own food problems.
Hungary -- a member of the World Food Programme's Government Council -- hopes with assistance from the FAO, to build more farms, along similar lines to the one at Szarvas. It's all part of Hungary's aid programme, which provides regular assistance to the developing nations, particularly those in Africa.
