BIO 236 - Aquaculture Internship

This course provides students with hands-on experience at a work site such as a fish or shellfish hatchery, nursery field site, and/or growout site where cultured finfish, shellfish, sea vegetables, or crustaceans are reared commercially or for research purposes.  Academic credit for an approved work experience is determined by the faculty sponsor.  Prior to undertaking the internship, students must provide the faculty sponsor with a written statement regarding the: 1) work to be performed; 2) proposed learning objectives; and 3) number of hours per week.  This formal approval process precedes registration.  Students must complete 40 hours of supervised work for each credit earned, and must demonstrate satisfactory performance as judged by the work site supervisor.  Students will produce a written report to be submitted to the faculty supervisor that covers both broad and specific topics associated with the internship as well as how the learning objectives were met.
