In addition to research work , several members of the group actively participate in various educational programs. These are the most important educational activities of the group which include doctoral courses, graduate and master training programs. CSIC.
REPRODUCTIVE ECOLOGY AND REPRODUCTIVE POTENTIAL OF MARINE FISH POPULATIONS
PhD training program of the University of Vigo (40h)
This course complements the course entitled “Analysis of reproductive parameters in marine fish populations” (120h), during the second year of the PhD program.
The objectives of the course are to deepen the knowledge of the reproductive strategies of different commercially harvested marine species and their responses to both environmental and fishing changes. We study the different patterns and estrategies, estimate size and age at first maturation and its fluctuations. We analyze the differences between strategies at the time and place od spawning. Also reproductive migrations and bioenergetics of reproduction, the concept of reproductive potential and in general all reproductive parameters that influence the recruitment of fish populations and the mechanisms that affect fluctuacions and problems of stock-recruitment relationships.

AQUACULTURE MASTER DEGREE PROGRAM (Universidad de Vigo)
This postgraduate course will provide students with the knowledge, and basic skills to design and carry out research in the field of aquaculture for development of the aquaculture industry.
The program invloves academic, professional and research institutions: all of the Universities of the Galician University System (SUG), teaching and training centers (Galician Institute for Aquaculture Training, IGAFA), research institutions (Spanish Institute of Oceanography, IEO; Institute of Marine Research CSIC; Marine Investigation Center, CIMA), as well as professional associations like the Aquaculture Cluster of Galicia and the Organization of Galician Mussel Producers (OPMEGA).

MICROSCOPY AND IMAGE ANALYSIS
In 2008 this department taught the course entitled ” Microscopy and Image Analysis “, organized by the CSIC Training Office, with a duration of 14h. It described the fundaments of optical microscopy and image analysis and its applications in fisheries ecology
