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.
Morgan completed a Masters degree in the Marine Resource Management program at Oregon State University in 2015. Upon graduating, she stayed with AquaFish for an additional year as Professional Faculty as a Gender Specialist and Outreach and Communication Manager. Her graduate thesis research in the Philippines focused on illuminating the importance of including women and other vulnerable populations in resource and disaster management in order to produce a sustainable response from the affected community. While she is no longer full-time with AquaFish, she is still doing research on gender and aquaculture with Dr. Egna. Today, Morgan works the Global Oceans Team at The Nature Conservancy, supporting the Coastal Resilience Program.
Moureen, originally from Uganda, graduated with her Bachelors in Environmental Science Technology and Management from Kyambogo University. Before beginning her Masters, she volunteered with the National Fisheries Resources Research Institute (NaFIRRI), where she was moved by her interactions with women farm owners.
With support from AquaFish, Moureen received a Masters in Fisheries and Allied Aquaculture from Auburn University in 2015. Her Masters research involved expanding an already existing cell phone-based aquaculture market for Ugandan farmers. Moureen plans to continue to work in aquaculture outreach in her future career.
