    Master of Science: Fisheries Science and Management

    JCU is one of the world’s leading universities in Marine Science and offers study on Fisheries Management in the Tropics. This was the main reason I travelled from Germany to study here in Townsville. I had the opportunity to work on projects which will help to conserve the marine environment on an international scale.
