/Class Outline
In FY 2022, the Toyoshiomaru, a training vessel of Faculty of Applied Biological Science at Hiroshima University, has been approved as a Third Stage Education Center, providing opportunities for joint uses outside the university. In this new course, a proposal will be made on the “Blue Growth ” (Innovation that creates new value and jobs while preserving coastal and marine conservation), which was adopted by the EU and in which Japan is also participating, through field trips, observations and discussions among students. In relation to the five key sectors of Blue Growth ((1) Biotechnology, (2) Renewable energy and decarboxylation society, (3) Fishing and aquaculture, (4) Tourism, (5) Marine resources), we are looking for "Bringing Themes" (2 pairs x 4 themes). 
Class Schedule The below is an example on tentative schedule. The actual cruise dates will be determined based on an annual cruise schedule of Toyoshiomaru.

Sep 18:Deparitng from Kure port, briefing
         Cruising to Onomichi area, occasional water sampling during the cruise
Sep 19: Leaving Onomichi port, anchoring off the Fukuyama port.
          On-site observation of fishing activity.
          Participating marine tourism and/or observation and experiment in the ship
Sep 20: Leaving Fukuyama. Student presentation in the ship.

Principally, students belonging to the laboratories relating to fisheries and/or marine sciences (a pair consisted of 2 students) can join the cruise. The research contents should be determined based on consulting with each supervisors.  
Requirements Principally, students belonging to the laboratories relating to fisheries and/or marine sciences (a pair consisted of 2 students) can join the cruise. This is a core course of the Education Center and therefore students from other universities  will be prioritized. Total 8 students are assumed.

The additional cost is needed for this class, because of staying on the Toyoshiomaru. It is about 4,000 yen for meals and the cleaning cost of bed sheets, and we will collect them on the first day.
