I finished my Bachelor of Fisheries at University of the Philippines Visayas in 2013 and currently I am writing my thesis for my Master’s degree in Fisheries, majoring in Fisheries Biology at the same university. My specialism is Marine fisheries which includes fishing gears, aquatic flora and fauna, oceanography and ecotoxicology. In my master’s degree I was doing fish reproductive biology and ecotoxicology. I was also involved in projects at the same university where I have gained knowledge and experience in ecosystem assessments such as mangroves, corals and corals reefs, and marine protected areas.
I love going into undiscovered coastal places where I can observe people before tourism could enter the area. I love talking to people, hearing their stories and of course enjoy eating the fresh catch with them.
