UAPB is looking for juniors and seniors who are interested in pursuing a degree in aquaculture/fisheries to participate in the program.

The program will be a fun day of learning about biology, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, economics and marketing, nutrition and how they all relate to fish and future careers.

There will be hands-on learning. Demonstration events will be pond sampling, catfish culture, fisheries equipment, opportunities in aquaculture/fisheries and more.
