fisheries ecology course was a great experience, which I would recommend
to everybody interested in improving their skills and knowledge
in this topic. During the course we were given a complete and broad
knowledge about climatic interaction with fisheries, and about recent
research trends. Many topics were discussed and different points
of views were introduced to gain a better comprehension of the phenomena.
The course was short but intense and strongly interactive, giving
us lots of new stimuli and ideas. Thanks to the top-level facilities
provided for the practical sessions, we had the opportunity to practice
our research skills and learn new techniques and their applications.
The two-days fishing cruise practice was an amazing experience.
The course was definitely well organized: I appreciated the effort
put in to improve the quality, with the high level of lectures,
given by international experts, the house facilities for international
students, the help provided for any circumstance. The atmosphere
during the course and in the lab was always friendly and relaxed,
and I could only suggest everybody to join the course and enjoy
"The course provided a great
mixture of lectures, discussion groups, lab and field work, as well
as the opportunity to meet with world-class researchers, travel
and experience Iceland as part of the curriculum. The friendly and
relaxed atmosphere amongst students and teachers resulted in a great
learning experience and I have taken many fond memories of Iceland,
the students and staff at the Institute of Biology with me."
