We are continuing our work with the project.
One focus is: Develop Safe Boat Design and Boat Building (SBDBB) based on FAO Standards.
Boatbuilding is a complex and labour intensive industry. Safety of the boat is based on the designing of the boat and use of quality materials in building boats. The base for width, draft and depth of the boat is related with the length of the boat. Optimum use of space in the boat is another safety factor to be considered while designing and building a boat. Marine electrification with proper luminous is indispensible in the boat.
See below for some pictures of our engagement with students.
Due to regrettable and unfortunate circumstances, we are forced to postpone the NMCSI summit meeting planned for Nov. 27 and 28 in Kankyakumari.
It is for your kind information that the NMCSI-8 will be held on 5th November 2015 at the Conference Hall, Central Institute of Fisheries Education, Kolkata Centre, West Bengal. Few of them are already expressed their inability in attending the meeting due to pre-occupied event. Others please attend the meeting and provide your valid inputs.
We are pleased to announce the release of the minutes and recommendations of the seven National Mission Meeting for Conservation of Sharks-India. Please see the linked document below.
A special meeting was organized in Scott Christian College, Nagercoil on 9th October 2015 at the eve of the IEEE Day. Dr.M. Rashi, the Vice-principal has presided the meeting. Dr.A. Moses Ezhil Raj, Head of the Department of Physics and Dr. Chella Kumar Rose, Dean, Annai Vailankanni College of Engineering, Nagercoil delivered special address. Mr. Sam Michael, Artisanal Deep Sea Fisherman (Expert in Traditional Communication) and Mr. S.Elkiyas, Artisanal Deep Sea Fisherman (Expert in Traditional Navigation) shared their experience. Dr. A. Anandhy HoD of Economics, Dr. C. James, Department of Physics, Prof. B. Shamina Ross, Department of Computer Science, Prof.G. Ramesh Babu, Department of Business Administration, Dr. Suresh Chandra Kumar, Department of Chemistry, Dr. P. Sundara Raj, Department of Economics, Dr. D. Hylin Reba, Department of Economics, Dr. Selva Smiley, Department of Economics and Dr. Jeena Pearl, Department of Chemistry were attended the meeting. Mr. J.Vincent Jain, Chair, IEEE Artisanal Deep Sea Fishers SIGHT discussed various projects which are needed to fisheries sector especially to the Artisanal Deep Sea Fisheries. Dr. A.Yardily, Department of Chemistry has taken the responsibility of organizing the meeting and he welcomed the gathering. Er. Angelin Indira, Project Coordinator, IEEE Artisanal Deep Sea Fishers SIGHT delivered the IEEE Day message and also proposed vote of thanks.
It is proposed to form a separate group under IEEE Artisanal Deep Sea Fishers SIGHT in Scott Christian College like NCC, NSS, Red Cross, Green Crops etc. The purpose of forming such kind of group is to encourage non-engineering students and faculty members to develop humanitarian technology activities and engage them in such kind of activities.
Dr. M.Suresh Chandra Kumar has already built a model boat with rubber mixed material and he wished to develop a scale down model boat for Artisanal Deep Sea Fishers. He also agreed to make Kitchen and Bio toilet for the boats. Prof.B. Shamina Ross has expressed interest in developing a Digital Screen. Physics students expressed their interest in luminous intensity study in fishing boat with the students of Annai Vailankanni College of Engineering and St. Xaviers Catholic College of Engineering. Prof.G. Ramesh Babu has agreed to undertake a preliminary study on fish market value chain. A project on Cost Benefit Analysis for a Fishing Boat to the B.Com students lead by Mr. Jeniston
IEEE Artisanal Deep Sea Fishers SIGHT provide the below mentioned services to the College:
- Capacity Building Training
- Skill Development Programme
- Training on Project Preparation, Evaluation etc
- Preparing students in various Competitive Examinations
