This success and achievement cannot be separated from collaborative work in the Capture Project research and innovation community at the Capture Fisheries Workshop, Capture Fisheries Department, Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences (FPIK) UNDIP. Under the direction of Kukuh Eko Prihantoko, S.Pi., M.Si. as the supervisor of the student team, the Undip Capture Project Team was able to show their best and interesting innovations in international competitions.
“There are many challenges in the development of this innovation, but the collaborative work of students across study programs that was initiated at the Capture Fisheries Department turned out to be able to compete in international events. Hopefully this innovation will complete the results of Undip’s innovation products and benefit the community. Congratulations to the entire Capture Project Team for their achievements and hopefully there will be more technological innovations that are beneficial to society,” said Kukuh optimistically.
