Resources

The FT has many valuable resources that are divided into 2 (two) forms:
  1. Faculty resource
  2. Laboratory resource
 
Faculty resource:

Presently the FT has ten (10) teaching staff who are specialized in post-harvest fisheries technology, fisheries microbiology, processing biochemistry, fish product utilization, quality assurance, food security, traceability, and molecular biology. They are working on various aspects of fisheries technology including post-harvest handling, preservation, fish processing, quality control, post-harvest biotechnology, protein and enzyme engineering of seafood and meat products, formulation and safety aspects of new foods from underutilized species, and the biochemistry of fish processing and enzymology.
