A field trip to the beautiful Shahdra Valley was arranged for a group of ASAB students on 25th February, 2016. This educational trip was organised for the undergraduate students studying the core course “Marine Biotechnology” and the main purpose of this trip was the collection and analysis of different fresh water algal species. The trip provided the students a great opportunity to observe and collect various different algal species from their natural habitats. These samples were later examined microscopically in a laboratory at ASAB. The students not only enjoyed the field trip to Shahdra but also gained knowledge and enhanced their level of understanding through practical experience.
