WorldFish Center

The WorldFish Center in Penang, Malaysia, has hosted four high school interns since 2002.

Established in 1977, the WorldFish Center is an international research organization working to eradicate hunger and poverty through research and development to enable small scale fisheries to be more resilient and productive, and to support the adoption of sustainable aquaculture that specifically benefits the poor.

The WorldFish Center carries out research and development in policy, economics and social sciences; natural resource management; aquaculture; and genetic improvement.

Headquartered in Penang, Malaysia, the WorldFish Center has research centers in eight countries in Asia, Africa, and the Pacific.

Interns at WorldFish Center work alongside renowned international researchers and experts - like the Dr. Meryl Williams, and Dr. Ilona Stobutzki - in the field at Redang Island and the WorldFish Center's research labs in Penang.

The students also had the opportunity to travel around Malaysia with their host families and colleagues to see the Batu Ferringhi night markets, Penang Times Square, Kek Lok Si Temple, Gurney Plaza, Dragon Boat Festival, and Penang Hill.
