Running a production forecast model
developed and tested in hatcheries.
The National Aquaculture Act of 1980
(P.L. 96-362), signed into law Septem-
ber 26, 1980, offers the information
community a unique opportunity to lend
its resources, talents, and technology
to the development in this decade of a
viable aquaculture industry in the
United States. Declaring aquaculture
to be the .n"titnal interest, the 96th
Congress eMacted legislation to en-
courage it ::d9 lopment.

erations, and on a larger scale, con-
tribute to the reduction of the U.S...
balance of payments deficit and the de-
velopment of healthy export markets.
For consumers it would mean an added
source of low-fat, high quality protein
in the diet.

The first of two reports issued by the
National Academy of Sciences in the j
late 1970's addresses constraints and
opportunities for the development of,
aquaculture in the U.S. and identifies
a number of areas needing support! d4-
rection, or attention.1/The second. re-
port makes specific recommendations -re-
garding the role of the U.S. Department
of Agriculture in aquaculture.2/On the
matter of administrative organization,
the recommendation is made for cre-
ating "...a central data resource...
to collect, collate, and disseminate
data and provide users with one com-
prehensive contact (including library
access) for a two-way flow of informa-
tion" on aquaculture. Noting that ap-
proximately twenty federal agencies are
involved in aquaculture to some degree,
the report includes the recommendation
for the continuation and strengthening
of coordination of federal aquaculture
activities. Another recommendation is
that "a national aquaculture infor-
mation system be established that would
make available programs, poli.c.ies, and
research activities to government and
in the private sector."

Similarity in the wording of the latter
report and current legislation is ap-
parent. The National Aquaculture Act
of 1980 calls for the development of a
National Aquaculture Development Plan
and additionally requires that "an in-
formation service for the collection,
analysis and dissemination of scien-
tific, technical, legal and economic
information relating to aquaculture"
be established and maintained. Auth-
orization for appropriations for fiscal
years '81, '82, and '83 was made to
the Departments of Agriculture,
Commerce, and Interior to carry out
provisions of the Act. Responsibility
at the national level for the coordina-
tion of federal programs and activities
regarding aquaculture has been assigned
to the interagency aquaculture coordi-
nating group operating as the joint Sub-
committee on Aquaculture of the Federal
Coordinating Council for Science, Engi-
neering, and Technology. The purpose of
this group is to increase the overall
effectiveness and productivity of fed-
eral aquaculture research, transfer and
assistance programs through a variety of
means including the collection, compila-
tion, and dissemination of information
on aquaculture. The coordinating group
is required to report regularly to the
Federal Council on recommendations con-
cerning federal aquaculture policies and

Preparation of a strategy for partici-
pating in a national aquaculture effort
by the information community will be
challenging, and as a national plan
emerges, information managers in the
public and private sectors will need to
define the related roles of the librar-
ies, information services, or programs
they direct. Current aquaculture ef-
fort in Technical Information Systems
(TIS) is aimed at providing support to
the Department as its role in national

projects are currently tagged in the
TIS Current Research Information Sys-
tems (CRIS) data base and are being
made available for direct computer
online access by researchers, aquacul-
turists, and individuals in the public
and private sectors. A coding scheme
specifically for aquaculture projects
in the data base has been designed to
achieve more effective computer re-
trieval. A comprehensive bibliography
of published literature on aquaculture
which is maintained in the TIS AGRICOLA
data base is also being prepared as a
companion to the research directory.

TIS recently compiled and is maintain-
ning a directory of key contacts in
aquaculture primarily within the States

and the State University Land-Grant
system. It lists over 700 individuals
who conduct or direct aquaculture pro-
grams or activities or who manage
sizeable information resources and
services. The directory will be ex-
panded to include several thousand fish
growers, breeders, and processors in
the private sector and will be used as
a tool for rapid delivery of informa-
tion to aquaculturists throughout the

available to the extension community.
To supplement information about current
activities, State Extension ("how to")
publications on aquaculture are being
entered in the TIS AGRICOLA data base
for direct online access.

Central to the TIS effort is the planned
expansion of the TIS collection of aqua-
culture journals, books, and reference
materials, and the use of appropriate
classification/tracking systems for the
identification and retrieval of aquacul-
ture information in its data bases.

Also in progress is the modification of
computer software to allow for rapid
preparation of published bibliographies
and research directories from aquacul-
ture information residing in AGRICOLA
and CRIS. TIS continues to provide
funds toward the support of the ongoing
interagency aquaculture translations
program. A total of 129 transla-
tions of articles on aquaculture have
been prepared. A partial listing was
issued as Supplement 2 to Agricultural
Libraries Information Notes, 5(7/8)
july/August 1979. Later plans include
the preparation of an annotated catalog
of USDA and State aquaculture programs
and activities and its maintenance in a
computer system for public access.

In the Fall of 1979 the U.S. Department
of Agriculture's Aquaculture Work Group,
in a working paper titled, "Aquaculture.
A Program for the Eighties," described
objectives for meeting pressing aquacul-
ture industry needs and identified the
role of USDA in supporting the develop-
ment of aquaculture in the United States.
In an effort to obtain comment and
recomnendtions for use in updating the
plan, copies of the report and the 1980
legislation were sent in February 1981
to key contacts in the aquaculture com-
nunity. Addressees included directors
of the State Land-Grant and affiliated
libraries. It appears timely for the

agricultural information community to .'
alert itself to opportunities for par- .:
ticipation in this national effort. ..

The 1890 Land-Grant Library Directors'
Association and Tuskegee Institute was
formerly organized in Huntsville,
Alabama at the Agricultural Information
Conference, November 1978. Officers
elected were Barbara Williams (S.C.
State), President; Nicholas Gaymon
(Florida A & M), Secretary and Anne
Kling (Tuskegee Institute), Treasurer.
The first official meeting was held in
Atlanta, Georgia, February 13, 1979 at
which time the purposes, by-laws and
other organizational requirements were
implemented. All presidents and 1890
research directors were informed of the
organization and support was solicited
from them.

The primary purposes of the associa-
tion are: to promote cooperation be-
tween the 1890 land-grant college and
university libraries; to assist the
1890 research directors and staff of
the 1890 research programs, and to
maintain high standards of operation
for the 1890 land-grant college and
university libraries. The first plan
of action was the coordination of in-
formation services in the support of
agriculture and related research at the
1890 land-grant institutions.

The organization has accomplished the
following tasks:

(1) Compiled agricultural and agri-
cultural related serials in the
libraries of the 1890 land-grant
colleges and universities.

(2) Formulated a draft proposal to
establish an information network
for the 1890 land-grant college
libraries and Tuskegee Institute.

(3) Poblished and distributed the
first volume of the Association's

Both farmers and the European Economic
Community's 30,000 agricultural advi-
sors and extension workers constantly
need information on market prices, new
products, disease warnings, weather,
feeding standards, new regulations

The question is: how can they gain
rapid and systematic access to infor-
mation affecting their sometimes remote

Videmn didnmlkh simple n operale.

A study has now been started to assess
whether videotex systems can provide a

Its broad aims are to establish:

-whether there is a demand for
videotex-based services, its scale,
price elasticity and expectancy.
-the value of the service to the
extension workers.
-the cost of such a service, and
-the main technical issues which will
need to be overcome.

The contractor, AREGON, will in partic-
ular identify the kind of Information
which farmers need, in order of pri-
ority, and whether this can be made
available best through videotex. Equal-
ly important is the attitude of farmers

and agricultural advisory services to

A new agricultural news service was
inaugurated in January.

It is called "Agline," an offshoot of
the Laboratory for Information Science
and Agriculture, a department in the
College of Agricultural Sciences at
Colorado State University.

The new service is designed to inform
the public of agriculture's growing

"Agline" sends monthly packages of
about eight articles to news wire
services, individual newspapers and
farm periodicals, which have the option
of running the stories (and paying for
them) or not.

Initially, the funding is. from private
sources, but ultimately the service
intends to be self-supporting.

"Agline" is looking for stringers, both
writers and photographers, in all parts
of the nation.

The new service foresees retrospective retrieval for bibliographic references,
through users profiles, built by means of descriptors or words extracted from the
document. The information to be retrieved belongs to the national and interna-
tional data bases, including AGRIS International System for Agricultural
Sciences and Technology. The National Agricultural Library, central body of the
National System for Agricultural Information and Documentation (SNIDA), AGRIS'
National Center in Brazil, operates an SDI Service, called BIP/AGRI, based on the
AGRIS tapes. This service has reached approximately 3,000 users in the agricul-
tural sector with great success. Beginning in 1981 BIP/AGRI will charge an util-
ization annuity for being totally operational. This service provides highly rel-
evant bibliographic information concerning subjects of interest to its users on a
monthly basis. This software called SIRI, makes available information through
subject, object and geographical codes; through free terminology and users access
language. Profiles can be established for information retrieval in all the fields

The first WORLD FOOD DAY will be October 16, 1981 the anniversary of the founding
of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. The 147 member
nations of FAO established WORLD FOOD DAY because they felt the need to alert
public opinion to the gravity of the world food situation now and the dangers in
the years to come. WORLD FOOD DAY should have a special importance to people
living in Canada and the United States. These two countries alone hold more than
40% of world grain reserves and account for about two-thirds of world grain
exports and two-thirds of all food aid. The abundance of North American
agriculture is the world's last line of defense against famine.

WORLD FOOD DAY provides an opportunity to restudy North America's role in the
global food picture.

As 1981 began, the world food situation was deteriorating. Global grain reserves
had fallen for the second straight year. Very large areas of Africa remained
parched by drought. Hunger problems of refugees continued in several countries.
While we can't accurately predict this year's weather, there is real danger that
the first WORLD FOOD DAY on October 16 will come at a time of deepening crisis.
Yet even if harvests this year are bountiful, huge numbers of people will still go
hungry. WORLD FOOD DAY observances can be an important way not only to show
humanitarian concern but to consider new steps North Americans can take in the war
against hunger.
