Fishery Science Gallery: Sustainable Fishery Resources
Unlike traditional fishing culture shows, our Fishery Science Gallery effectively merges science, technology, and culture in an interdisciplinary manner in hopes of vividly presenting intimate ways in which people, wild life, and the nature interact with one another over an extended period of time.
For instance, through illustrations of the food chain relationship that exists between humans and aquatic life forms that are found in this exhibit, visitors can not only better appreciate the indispensable role that oceans play in ensuring the continual survival of humanity but also develop a greater sense of urgency in maintaining dwindling marine resources. Visitors are exposed to the latest developments in aquaculture. As they walk through this exhibition, they become much more acquainted with the recent rise of fisheries in response to limited amount of seafood as a food source.
Similarly, they also learn about ways in which processed fishery products, such as canned fish and dried foods from the sea, are delivered from machines to the hands of customers. Equally important is the realization that given proper care, marine resources and can in fact be a sustainable food source.
