BEES Strengthens Links to Shanghai

Wed, 20 Apr 2011

Prof. Gavin Burnell at SHOU Professor Gavin Burnell of the School of BEES delivered a paper at the Asian Fisheries and Aquaculture Conference today Weds April 20th. The paper is entitled "A community based scallop restoration project in Co. Kerry, Ireland".  This is work that has arisen from a Marine Institute Beaufort project "An ecosystem approach to fisheries management". Gavin also took the opportunity to network meet with the President of Shanagai University (see picture).

The President is very keen to see a small number of Chinese students exchange with UCC in the first instance. Gavin will continue his networking with a meeting with their Dean of International Affairs on Thursday morning to explore the possible areas for collaboration and exchange.  "The main emphasis for my visit was to give a series of lectures to Professor Cheng's first year MSc Aquaculture students on the theme of 'An ecosystem approach to aquaculture and fisheries management'", said Prof. Burnell. 

"There is a keen interest in "green and sustainable" industry in China at the moment and the message seemed to go down well."
