Presentations at University of Akureyri

University of Akureyri will be the venue for the FTP afternoon presentation session Wednesday February 19th -- the topic is fisheries policy and management.

This was also the topic in a presentation session at the MFRI in Reykjavík earlier in the week.

Graduating fellows will introduce the final projects which they have been working on over the last three months under the supervision of specialists from our Icelandic partner institutes.

The presentations are open to all – it's a great opportunity to learn about some of the challenges fisheries and aquaculture are facing in different countries throughout the world.
