School of Fisheries Sciences: Practice on a training ship

In 1880, Dr. John C. Cutter, a foreign teacher at the newly opened Sapporo Agricultural College, gave a lecture on fisheries in a zoology class, which is considered to be the beginning of fisheries education in Japan. Unlike most of the natural sciences, which were modeled after Europe and the United States, fisheries science is the only natural science that originated in Japan.
The current School of Fisheries Sciences is said to be a faculty that has inherited the spirit of Sapporo Agricultural College. Educational goal. This is the 14th of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) presented at the United Nations Summit in 2015, “Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.” It leads to realization.
One of the features of this department is that there are opportunities to learn about "marine resources" and "ecosystems" through practice on training ships. We are currently implementing an initiative (Balance de Ocean) to integrate it into a web application, aiming to quickly discover and develop top scientists in the ocean field and to develop young human resources who can play an active role internationally.
The graduates of this department, which incorporates practical fieldwork such as practical training at sea, are highly evaluated for their strong mental strength and activeness cultivated through boarding and graduation research, as well as their flexible ability to respond flexibly to situations. They are active in various fields of society and on the world stage. The academic achievements of this faculty have been highly evaluated internationally, attracting a great deal of attention not only from the marine industry, but also from civil servants and companies. Also, if you want to go on to higher education, you can make various choices according to your wishes and goals.
