Special lecture for the OFCF participants(OFCF研修生に特別講義を実施)



Today, there were a special lecture for the foreign participants who have been invited by the Overseas Fishery Cooperation Foundation of Japan (OFCF). This is a part of the official program by the Faculty of Fisheries Kagoshima University regarding the Leadership Development in Fisheries Management. I attended as a invited instructor for a whole day program of the phycology.

I told the characteristics and utilization of marine macro algae including Japanese edible seaweeds. After the lecture, participants observed the reproductive organ of the edible alga, Pyropia tenera, using the microscopes.
