our June campaign, conference, and workshop exhibition, we would
like to thank you for your keen attention to the fishery project
”From Kattegat to Aral Sea”.
is very encouraging to us to note that in any Danish newspaper in
these days, if the topmeeting in Aarhus is referred to, Kazakstan
is always mentioned. It is our impression that You with Your
performance on the topmeeting have been able to put Kazakstan on
the international agenda.
have been working together with Kazakstani partners for several
years, and for the first time we experience that people here know
about the basic geography and situation for the independent
republic of Kazakstan. We have talked with important members of
the Danish parliament who expressed their sincere conviction that
Kazakstan had placed itself in a central role in the topmeeting.
This result facilitates our work also.
would like to keep You somewhat informed on our activities.
following initiatives from the project are these:
late July, one project support worker (Bjerre Henrik) will arrive
in Aralsk to prepare the autumn work.
August, an Aral delegation, consisting in 7 people, including
fisherman, technician a.o., will visit Denmark to meet and discuss
with their Danish counterparts.
August, etnographer Svennevig Ingeborg, coordinator Christensen
Kurt, and Kazak coordinator Tairov Makhambet, will all visit
Aralsk to initiate the autumn programme.
August or September, I would like to meet some representative from
the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, who could be our
contact, concerning the Aral Sea.
the autumn, Danish fishermen, technicians, and a biologist will
participate in the work to reinforce the catching and distribution
of flounder from the Aral Sea.
results from this work will be collected in a project document in
early 1999. It is our aim to have this document founding eventual
applications for donors, concerning a possible extension of the
project, in the years 1999-2001.
