Abstract: A collaborative research program was established in Choluteca, Honduras, in 1993 to establish a baseline of estuarine water quality in the shrimp producing regions and to study the impact of pond management on effluent water quality. Participants in the program included Auburn University AL, the Ministry of Natural Resources, Government of Honduras, the National Association of Honduran Aquaculturists (ANDAH), Pan-American Agricultural School at Zamorano, Honduras, and the Federation of Export Producers (FPX). This report summarizes studies on effluent quality from ponds and makes associations between pond management and effluent quality.
