Continuation of Employment Training for Students in the Shell Fisheries Industry. Final Report. 1981-1982.
Cape May County Vocational Schools, NJ.
A project to provide training in the shell fishing industries was continued into its second year to develop entry-level skills for employment and provide instruction and hands-on experience through infusing the existing Marine Science program. Results from a survey of instructors and individuals involved in the industry were used to develop a performance test that included a written portion. (The test is provided.) The test was used to evaluate development of entry-level skills in students. A vocational student profile for shell fishing occupations was also designed as part of the project. Other activities--field trips, direct experience--were undertaken to develop and encourage continuous preservation of unpolluted areas for aquaculture purposes. (Appendixes include maps of field trip locations, discussion of oyster growth experiments, a bibliography, and a statement of philosophy and objectives suggested for a course of study for the shell fisheries industry.)
