Highlights from today’s pilot Seafood Industry Teacher Capacity (SITCAP) Building event – hosted by NRM South and the Tasmanian Seafood Industry Council, through the Tasmanian Smart Seafood Partnership project.
The Tasmanian seafood industry has made significant investment in and is extremely supportive of this capacity building work. Marine Science and Aquaculture Teachers from across Tasmania have been invited to participate, and teachers have spent the day learning more about how the seafood industry in Tasmania is managed, including research, regulation and how technology is used for sustainability. They are also gaining a unique insight into how seafood is caught, grown and processed in Tasmania.
This capacity building event is an important step in developing a collaborative working relationship between education and the seafood industry.
The TSSP is hosted by NRM South and works in partnership with the Tasmanian Seafood Industry Council. It is funded by the Australian Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment through round one of the National Landcare Program’s Smart Farming Partnerships.
