The College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences of UP Visayas, Miagao welcomed two graduate students from Japan to the Postgraduate Program in Tropical Fisheries with International Linkage on October 19, 2015 at the dean’s office of the college on October 19, 2015.
The two graduate students are Manabu Usami and Shingi Ushida who were accompanied by their sensei, Dr. Munechika Ishizaki.
The program is a five-university collaboration among UP Visayas, Kagoshima University (Japan), Sam Retulangi University (Indonesia), Kasetsart University (Thailand), and the Universiti Malaysia Terengganu. Graduate students from these five universities may enrol in any of the five academic institutions to get credits for their own course program.
In addition the program was conceived with the recognition that tropical fisheries are more complex than temperate fisheries.
