A REVIEW OF MARITIME ENGLISH EDUCATION AND TRAINING IN CHINA IN COMPARISON WITH OTHER TOP SUPPLIERS OF SEAFARERS

Abstract

As a compulsory subject for seafarers’ certification of competency in China, Maritime English is designed to ensure Chinese seafarers’ maritime English proficiency. However, the outcomes of maritime English education and training are not perceived to be satisfactory by the shipping industry. Research on maritime English education and training in China is relatively sparse and unsystematic. This paper will first review publications on maritime English education and training in China to present a clear picture of existing studies and their findings. A comparative review will then be made between China and other world top suppliers of seafarers to investigate their similarities and differences in maritime English education and training. Due to limited number of journal papers available on the topic, the review mainly focuses on the International Maritime English Conferences Proceedings published from 2004 to 2014. A review of related articles identified five themes: maritime English assessments, maritime English teaching materials, maritime English learning and teaching methods, maritime English teachers and maritime students. Issues corresponding to the five themes are compared and analysed before some suggestions for improvements are made in line with the Manila Amendments 2010.

Keywords

maritime English; non-English speaking countries; education and training; STCW 2010; communicative competence; Chinese seafarers

WATER BIOLOGICAL RESOURCES FOR THE PRODUCTION OF FUNCTIONAL PRODUCTS

Abstract

The priority direction of modern science about healthy nutrition of the population is the development of principles of technology of functional food products, allowing quick and effective correction of nutritional status. Functional foods should be consumed regularly as part of the normal diet, while improving physical and mental health, preventing or reducing the occurrence of diseases. The value of products from aquatic biological resources in the organization of functional nutrition is that they contain complete proteins, fats – natural sources of unsaturated fatty acids, various biologically active substances, necessary for the body. Accordingly, they are able to retain their functional activity in the finished product in case of differentiated approach to the composition and rational treatment of aquatic bio resources.

Keywords

healthy nutrition, functional products, alginic acid, biological resources, biopolymer, fishing industry

MODERN WAYS OF PROTECTING HYDROBIONTS FOOD PRODUCTS FROM DAMAGING FACTORS

Abstract

The article considers the technology of secure preservation of aquatic raw materials with the aim of obtaining high quality products. Conservation must preserve the product’s biological value, characteristic aromatic properties and consistency, the ability to maintain stability during the storage period. One of the ways is the production of lightly salted products based on modern technologies such as the use of chitosan.

Keywords

THE NORTHERN SEA ROUTE AND ITS IMPACT ON ASIA-PACIFIC

Abstract

Global climate changes open new prospects for economic activities in the Arctic. Transit navigation between North-Eastern Asia and Europe via the Northern Sea Route (NSR) is maybe the most promising option for export oriented economies of China, Japan and Korea. But, we should not be overly optimistic and take into account positive and negative factors influencing the progress of Arctic exploration and commercial exploitation. To avoid unnecessary risks and confrontation all interested parties should clearly understand the interests and priorities of each other, coordinate and collaborate in mutually beneficial economic and humanitarian projects.

Keywords

Arctic transit system, Northern Sea Route, ice melting, oil spill fast response, navigational incidents
