Apolinario Yambot

Aquaculture, Best Published Paper in Marine Resources (2007)

Expertise: Aquaculture, Fish Immunology, Inland Fisheries

Dr. Apolinario V. Yambot is recognized for his important contributions in the field of Aquaculture gladly accepted the responsibilities and challenges inherent upon him as the newly designated dean of the College of Fisheries during the Turn Over Ceremony and College Orientation Program last June 27. His goal for the college is to raise further its standard and quality of research in fisheries science by doing the following: (a) continue upgrading research skills of the faculty members through training under the tutelage of ISI-publishing scientists and through exposure to world class research facilities; (b) improve the research facilities and internet capability of the college with the support from the Freshwater Aquaculture Center; and (c) pursue research collaboration of the faculty members with ISI-publishing and top caliber scientists and publish research outputs in ISI journals. He pointed out during the turn over rites that the improvement in the quality of research skills and output of the faculty members will benefit the college in terms of quality fisheries science education particularly for the student. "Correct science will also benefit the end-users, the common "tao", as the past discoveries have proven. In our own small way, we can revolutionize fisheries science research in our country which will reverberate all throughout the country as we ranked second most famous to the University of the Philippines", he added.
