Fishery Science Teaching at the University Level. Report of a Workshop on University Curricula in Fishery Science (Paris, France, May 5-8, 1980). Unesco Reports in Marine Sciences No. 15.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France). Div. of Marine Sciences.
As a result of the increasing human impacts upon global marine and aquatic resources, there is an increasing need to produce fishery science experts who can contribute to management, planning, and research. The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations and Unesco cosponsored a workshop to examine the present status and problems in fisheries science teaching in various countries and to develop curricula in fishery science at a university level. Based upon the consensus that curriculum should be adapted to the specific needs of a country and its students, participants examined various case studies of curricula in the present global context. This analysis resulted in the criteria and recommended curricula for undergraduate and advanced degrees outlined in Part I of this workshop report. Part II contains a discussion of the need for fishery science graduates based on an analysis of the global situation and the six national case studies which guided the formulation of the recommended curricula in Part I.
