Palawan students train at AQD

By Development Communication Section

Twenty-four BS Fisheries students and two instructors from the Western Philippines University (WPU) in Palawan, Philippines finished their 5-day internship on 1 February at AQD’s Tigbauan Main Station in Iloilo. They were given lectures on the culture of marine fish and abalone and practical sessions on hatchery operations of these commodities. A demo on using the transmission electron & scanning electron microscopes was also provided.

WPU requested AQD for this type of arrangement instead of the regular on-the-job training (OJT, usually done during the summer break) since the school’s new curriculum does not have an OJT program. The instructors who attended this internship plan to propose to their school to adopt this type of arrangement for the succeeding batches of fisheries students.
