AquaFish has supported more than 500 students pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees in aquaculture, fisheries, aquatic ecology, economics, engineering, and many other disciplines. Some of our students who are or have been supported are featured below.
Patricia Nduku Muendo earned her Bachelors in Science in Aquatic Ecology from University of Nairobi in 1995. She then continued at the University of Nairobi, with the support of Aquaculture CRSP (ACRSP), to earn her Masters in Science in Hydrobiology. Patricia first became interested in aquaculture because of its potential to contribute to food security and her work with ACRSP enabled her to pursue her PhD in Aquaculture at Wangeningen University in the Netherlands. Currently, she most enjoys training others in aquaculture to further develop aquaculture in Kenya; this passion led Patricia to become a Lecturer at Machakos University.
Rachel N. Kamau earned her Bachelors of Sciences in Botany and Zoology at the University of Nairobi in 1986. She later returned to graduate school, with the support of Aquaculture CRSP (ACRSP), received her Masters in Philosophy from Moi University in 2005. Rachel first became interested in aquaculture because of its potential as an alternative and nutritious source of protein. Through work with ACRSP, she gained practical experiences and skills that augmented her abilities as an extension officer in fisheries for the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Natural Resources.
