The 2nd International Symposium on Aquaculture and Fisheries Education (ISAFE2) jointly organized by Asian Fisheries Society (AFS) and Shanghai Ocean University (SHOU) will be convened on SHOU campus at Lingang New City in Shanghai from Wednesday 22nd to Friday 24th April, 2015.
The ISAFE2 will once again bring educators, students and training agencies from across the aquaculture and fisheries industries, teaching institutions and education regulatory agencies to discuss many critical issues pertaining to the needs of the industry on the one hand and the issues confronting the training, academic and education regulatory agencies in ensuring a sustainable well-educated industry sector on the other hand in the Asia-Pacific (AP) region.
The theme for ISAFE2 is “Better Education, Better Professionals, Better Industry”. The symposium will discuss issues highlighted during ISAFE1 and on-going issues confronting aquaculture and fisheries education in the AP region. It will:
● Discuss the current status of aquaculture and fisheries education in the AP countries with special reference to
√ Curricula and courses;
√ Accreditations, quality and certification; and
√ Collaboration and partnership.
● Examine the existing and future linkages between AFS and regional educators with international agencies and institutions.
● Explore the on-going development of distance education and its impacts on the delivery of aquaculture and fisheries education. Presentation and working language in the symposium will be English. Welcome to Shanghai Ocean University and the fabulous city of Shanghai in April 2015!
