The Department of Fresh Water Biology & Fisheries of the University of Sindh Jamshoro observed the World Fisheries Day with several programmes, including a colourful rally and public conference on the Allama I.I Kazi Campus here on Friday.
The rally was flagged off by Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dr. Imdad Ali Ismaili and chairman of fisheries department Prof. Dr. Naeem Tariq Narejo in which teachers, students, fishery scientists, officials and social workers participated. The slogans of the rally were “conservation of fishery resource for the protection of human kind”, “stop over-fishing” and “save the water from pollution for the safety of fisheries”.
The day was observed with the theme to create awareness about fish importance, consumption, sustainable management and protection of our natural fisheries resources from the hazardous effects of environmental pollutants.
Artistic talents of the students highlighting the significance of the day were also displayed in the rally. The public conference was followed by the awareness rally which began from department of fisheries and after a long round reached back and converted into conference.
Addressing on the occasion the Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dr. Imdad Ali Ismaili said that the protection of the fisheries was the need of hour but it could be ensured through the awareness among the people.
He said that mere slogans were not sufficient to save the national assets but they could only be protected through education and research adding that the problems could be resolved in all the fields only through the knowledge and wisdom.
He said this awareness rally taken out by the students of department of fresh water biology and fisheries would prove beneficial and it would leave the deep impacts among the masses.
He stressed the need for initiating “blue revolution” (fish revolution) emulating the models of green and white revolutions. “Breeding technology and advanced fish farming techniques should be introduced instead of concentrating only on capture fisheries.
Dr. Ismaili said that indigenous fish species were facing severe threats leading to extinction.
“I think our concerned students can take up a study in this regard and find solutions to the problems. In addition to developing fishery science, the fisheries department should also strive for the uplift and socio-economic progress of the fishermen,” he said.
He said he with the help of department students and teachers would take steps to bring the fisher folk into the mainstream of society.
Dr. Naeem Tariq Narejo said that the production of native fish species had dropped drastically in Pakistan because of proliferation of exotic species in major lakes and water bodies.
“Alien species that in some cases were officially introduced in local waters have devastated the natural ecosystem and there is a dire need to initiate programmes to control exotic species in order to restore the ecosystem,” he said.
Dr. Narejo quoted a proverb as saying that the four-leg animals are more dangerous, 2-leg dangerous while the legless animals are peaceful so the fisheries are legless and we can benefit from it to a great extent.
According to him, natural fisheries resources are also threatened by overfishing. Habitat degradation, pollution and introduction of exotic fish species have seriously affected the productivity of natural freshwater bodies.
“We intend to work with fishermen at different water bodies including Keenjhar, Manchhar and Chotiari lakes to enhance productivity of the water bodies as well as create livelihood for fishermen communities,” he said.
He urged the government authorities to take measures to reduce overfishing, particularly that of shrimps. “Pressure on shrimp grounds has increased colossally. The issue can be addressed by placing trawler excluding device that will help us create a zone where shrimp can survive. The device is basically obstruction placed in waters serving as shrimp breeding grounds,” Dr. Narejo said.
Dr. Wazir Ali Baloch on the occasion said that the over-fishing must be brought to an end for nurturing of fisheries in the country and ensuring alternate livelihood for the people.
He added that over-fishing by foreign and local trawlers had ruined coastal economy, bringing untold sufferings particularly to small fishermen.
He emphasized that time had come that the government act promptly in the interest of the fisheries and to save them from further ruination and at the same time he also urged the local fishermen to desist from using harmful nets for fishing.

Speakers at a concluding ceremony of two-day workshop titled “teaching as a profession” have said skilled teachers are needed to achieve the objective of quality education. They called for consolidated efforts to motivate educators to perform their duties with care and sensitivity.
They were speaking at a certificate distribution ceremony of a 2-day training workshop for teachers belonging to faculty of social sciences held under the auspices of Higher Education Commission (HEC) Islamabad and Department of Psychology, SU here at Nelson Mandela Hall, University of Sindh, Jamshoro on Thursday.
Dean Faculty of Social Sciences Prof. Dr. Parvaiz Ahmed Pathan was chief guest in the event while among others Pro Vice Chancellor SU Bhit Shah Campus Prof. Dr. Aslam Parvaiz Memon and Prof. Nageena Parveen Soomro also participated in the ceremony.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Parvaiz Ahmed Pathan said that there was a strong co-relation among education, knowledge and development, which was a process that should focus on bringing about a positive change among learners.
Referring to the importance of teachers’ training, he said that the area required serious attention of their educational managers.
“Though we tend to invest a great deal in brick and mortar, we ignore the development and training of our teachers”. Dr. Pathan said.
“Merely transfer of knowledge or skill should not be the ultimate objective and if that is so, it will be a failure of the education process. Instead education should develop constructive behaviour to promote a peaceful, friendly and healthy living environment for all.”
Dr. Aslam Parvaiz Memon said that more than fifty per cent of teachers across the country have ‘half-baked’ knowledge and lack in basic skills of teaching. “People opting for teaching should have the required knowledge along with enthusiasm for the profession. They should not move to the field due to lack of job opportunities in other sectors,” he added.
Dr. Memon further said that teachers should foster service mindedness and work towards the overall development of the students. “Every learning process in the world begins from teachers. Besides imparting knowledge and answering the questions in an understandable manner, teachers should also show love and affection towards the students,” he maintained.
Stressing on the need for eliminating the notion of ‘zero development’ in the teaching field, he called upon the teaching fraternity to do away with such misconceptions. He also urged the teachers not to shrug away from their responsibilities and carry on with discipline and hard work.
Dr. Muhammad Khan Sangi, Director Institute of English language & Literature, said that HEC’s teacher training would help fulfill the demand for qualified teachers in the universities of the country including that of Sindh Varsity. He stressed that similar activities for teaching techniques and skill development of the faculty of higher education should continue across the country. He suggested making the course available online, in hybrid, distanced and contact sessions. “This would go a long way in enhancing teaching competencies of university professors and lecturers while not being too time consuming.”
A college professor of English Imtiaz Ali Bughio said that the programme covered various aspects of professional competency development. It offered an opportunity for a pool of experienced and resource persons to collect and share ideas at the same time.
Prof. Nageena Parveen, urged the participants to carry the spirit of professional learning into their classrooms.
She asked the participants to actively take part in similar professional development programmes to keep themselves at par with modern needs of their profession.
In the end, the certificates were distributed among the participant teachers who got training.

Teachers urged to take the classes with full preparation burying the old tradition of carrying notes
The teachers should be fully prepared before going in the class for teaching and they should not entre the class rooms with old culture of taking notes with them. There is dearth of eligible officers in Sindh education ministry which caused destruction of primary education in the province.
The workshops and seminars contribute a lot towards updating and exchange of knowledge and information.
This was stated by the speakers, while speaking at the inaugural session of a two day workshop titled “teaching as a profession” organized by higher education commission (HEC) Islamabad at Nelson Mandela Hall, Arts Faculty Building, University of Sindh Jamshoro, a statement said on Wednesday.
It said the faculty members belonging to social sciences participated in the workshop which was presided over by the Dean Faculty of Social Sciences Prof. Dr. Parvaiz Ahmed Pathan while Prof. Qalander Shah Lakiyari, Prof. Nageena Parveen Soomro and others also were in attendance.
The Dean congratulated the HEC authorities, for organizing the workshop.
He, highlighting the significance of faculty of social sciences in the field of education, urged the faculty members to undertake research work to a great extent.
He was of the view that the development of the university depended on the academic excellence of the teachers, which could only be achieved if the teachers took interest in research work.
Dr. Pathan was optimistic that the workshop would contribute towards promotion of research in social sciences.
He gave details of the activities which will be conducted during the two-day moot.
He was of the view that research was a tool for the quest of truth, knowledge and understanding.
On the occasion, Prof Qalander Shah Lakiyari said that the quality education was imparted by the universities in the province but the condition of basic education was deplorable in Sindh.
He said that the quality of education in Sindh had deteriorated during the last several years as people associated with education had not played their due role for improvement in the quality of education.
“The main cause of deterioration of primary education in Sindh is the presence of ineligible officials who are in majority; if we ameliorate our primary schooling, it will be beneficial and we will be able to develop and progress”, he said.
He said that education must be given top priority and added that only through collective efforts the cause of education can be promoted.
Prof. Lakiyari further said that without education, no improvement in the society could be expected and added that teachers’ training was a key factor in improving the standard of education. He said that HEC was playing a leading role in training of teachers.
He hoped that the Sindh University would extend its all-out support and cooperation for the training of teachers and promotion of education.
Speaking on the occasion, Prof. Nageena Parveen Soomro said that due to commercialization of education, the importance of education had been sidelined. Paying tribute to the senior teachers, she said that they had worked with dedication.
She spoke on the importance of the Teachers’ Training and pointed out the problems faced by the teachers at primary and high school level.
She also presented the vote of thanks in the end.
