Introduction

All fellows take part in the introductory course the first 5 weeks of the 6-month training.  This course gives fellows a holistic view of fisheries and provides insights into various disciplines within fisheries and their connectedness. Through this course, fellows develop a comprehensive understanding fisheries in an international context and what is needed for a fisheries sector to develop. They also cultivate a better understanding of fisheries in their home countries. The introduction consists of a series of lectures, site visits and assignments.

The UNU-FTP emphasizes environmental conservation and gender equity are an integral to sustainable fisheries and the development of the fisheries sector.
