On October 24-25, 2018, Silliman University hosted the 50th Annual Convention of the Federation of Institution for Marine and Freshwater Sciences (FIFMS) and was participated by universities, colleges, and non-government organizations (NGOs) nationwide including St. Paul University Dumaguete. The event’s theme was “FIFMS at 50: Weathering Change through Academic Collaboration.”
Two alumni students from the College of Arts and Education (CAED), namely Isa Marie B. Gravador and Chrissie Kyell M. Trinidad with their adviser Ms. Irish S. Udtohan, represented the school in said event. There were a total of 68 oral and 59 posters presented in the two-day convention. Both CAED students presented in the poster category with their following studies: “Socio-economic Status of the Fishermen in Poblacion, Sibulan, Negros Oriental” by Gravador and “Fish Species Composition in Selected Informal Vendors at Brgy. Mayabon, Zamboangita, Negros Oriental and Length-Weight Relationship, Gonad and Parasite Frequency of the Fish with the Highest Volume” by Trinidad.
Indeed, the FIFMS’ goal was to continue to flourish as it gathers scientists and researchers in sharing their different researches in finding solutions towards the problems faced by our aquatic environment.
