/Class Outline
The Toyoshiomaru, a training vessel of Faculty of Applied Biological Science at Hiroshima University, has been designated as a third phase educational center since FY 2022, providing opportunities for joint use outside the university. In this new course, students from Thailand, Indonesia, Myanmar, and other ASEAN countries with a high level of dependence on marine products will experience two days and one night voyages together with Japanese students and/or other regions. In particular, bearing in mind the development of fisheries human resources who will contribute to the achievement of the SDGs, students will discuss how fisheries can contribute to the sustainable development of coastal areas, where the world's poor population is concentrated, by observing the fisheries industry in the Seto Inland Sea, talking with fishermen, and finding problems through actual ocean observations. It includes a visit to Itsukushima Shrine to understand the culture rooted in the sea.
