Academy for marine sciences due to open

An academy of halieutic and marine sciences is due to open this year in Moçâmedes, initially with places for 540 students who will follow a variety of courses, the State Secretary for Fisheries, Antónia Nelumba, has announced.

She said the institution would train students in such areas as maritime navigation, fish processing, exploitation of marine resources and apiculture, and the development was in line with a major policy to produce specialist managers for the country’s services, particularly for the fisheries ministry, reported Angola Press.

She also said that about 80 teachers had been trained, some from Angola and others from Poland, as part of the project.

“So far we have trained six PhDs and 12 masters graduates, but we are also considering recruiting more teachers,” said Nelumba.
