Abstract or Summary
  • This report is an overview of my experience working with the Consortium for International Fisheries and Aquaculture Development (CIFAD), administered from an office within Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon. CIFAD is a non-profit organization comprised of five U.S. universities: the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB), University of Hawaii (UH), University of Michigan (UM), Michigan State University (MSU), and Oregon State University (OSU). The program is directed by a Coordinator and governed by a Council consisting of representatives from each university. The function of the Consortium is to transfer knowledge and technical expertise in the disciplines of fisheries and aquaculture to developing countries around the world. My internship with CIFAD occurred during the Spring and Fall terms of 1984, April-June and Sept.-Dec., respectively. At the time I was hired, the Coordinator and a part time secretary were the only personnel in the Oregon State University office. I was originally hired simply to cover the periods during which the Coordinator was absent from the office. My willingness to become more involved, and the need for an additional employee, led to an extension in both my responsibilties and the duration of my internship. My immediate supervisor was Harvey Moore, the Coordinator of CIFAD. The title of my position varied. When corresponding with foreign or U.S. officials my title was Assistant Coordinator, however, I was more often referred to as Graduate Intern among Council members and Campus Coordinators. The period in which I worked for CIFAD was one of transition in both office personnel and location. Prior to my internship Harvey Moore was planning to retire. However, Douglas Jones the recently hired Executive Coordinator, had just accepted a transfer which necessitated that Mr. Moore resume his responsibilities. Mr. Moore served in this capacity for the majority of my internship. It was his initiative that created my position and his informal attitude that created an enjoyable working atmosphere throughout my participation. Toward the end of my first 3 month term with CIFAD the office was moved from Waldo Hall to Snell Hall on the OSU campus. The move not only provided CIFAD with better office facilities, it placed it in the same building as the Office of International Agriculture (OIA). This facilitated communication between the two programs and assisted in coordination of efforts. During the last few weeks of my internship Harvey Moore retired and the administrative functions of CIFAD were shifted to Fisheries and Wildlife. Dr. Richard Tubb, Head of the Fisheries and Wildlife Department and Campus Coordinator for CIFAD, took responsibility for the Consortium while Kevin Hopkins, former Associate Research Scientist with the International Center for Living and Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM), moved into the position of Coordinator. What follows is a summarization of my internship experience with CIFAD and the progression of changes that have occurred since my participation.
