Preparation of Secondary and Post-Secondary Students for Entry-Level Employment in the Shell Fishing Industry. Final Report, July 1, 1980-June 30, 1981.
Cape May County Vocational Schools, NJ.
The Marine Science Aquaculture Project is a program designed (1) to provide secondary and postsecondary students with job entry-level skills for employment in the shell fisheries industry; (2) to give students instruction and hands-on experience in the fundamental processes of seeding shell beds, monitoring and recording growth, and harvesting and marketing the mature product; (3) to develop and encourage continuous presentation of unpolluted areas for aquaculture purposes; and (4) to assist project graduates in contributing to the future development of the industry. Included among project procedures were the following activities: revision of an existing marine environmental occupations program; identification of area specialists to provide additional information; involvement of project instructors and students in collecting, growing, and harvesting shell fish; field trips to polluted and unpolluted shell fish areas; trips to other marine and aquaculture programs; career counseling and job placement of project students; and introduction of project students to the services of public and private organizations related to the industry. Data from a project-developed performance test and a vocational student profile for shell fishing occupations attested to the project's effectiveness. In addition, 50 percent of the project's first-year participants found employment in the field or related fields. (MN)
