CTU San Francisco, Carmen top 2021 Fisheries Technologist Licensure Exam

CTU graduates  in San Francisco and Carmen  ranked  7th and 9th in the Fisheries Technologist Licensure Exam, respectively, per results released by the Professional Regulation Commission on October 13th.

Prof. Arnel Nudalo of CTU San Francisco scores  83.25%.

“It was unexpected to be at the  7th place because the exam was quite hard. What I’ve prayed before was only to pass— for CTU and the BSFi Program. But it’s beyond my expectations; it’s a bonus. I am much happier,” said Prof. Nudalo who also expressed hope of promoting the Bachelor of Science in Fisheries program (BSFi), as it is an “important program—particularly on food security.”

Nudalo had a Bachelor’s degree in Fisheries at CTU San Francisco in 2018. He started his teaching stint in 2020 and now awaits the result of his application for tenure in the same school.

He published a study on shrimp (P. monodon) nutrition in a Scopus and ISI-indexed journal and co-authored an article on the hatching of a fairy shrimp (Branchinella thailandensis).

Prof. Honelyn R. Gomez of CTU Carmen scores 82.75%.

Meanwhile, Prof. Honelyn Gomez finished her Bachelor’s degree at CTU Carmen in 2012. She tried the food industry before landing a full-time teaching job in said campus last year.

According to her, the desire to continuously pursue advanced studies urged her to finish a Master of Science in Fisheries major in Fish Processing Technology at the University of the Philippines Visayas.

“Winners are not the people who never fail, but they are the ones who never quit, so never stop dreaming and never give up. God will certainly do the rest,” an advice she would generously give to her fishery students and aspiring fisheries technologists.

Moreover, Prof. Gomez became an author and co-author for  articles published in the  International Journal of Molecular Sciences in 2019 and 2018, respectively. She also  presented posters at the National and International Conferences in Fisheries Technology. Currently, she does researches for DOST-PCAARRD and USAID stride. UICPA
