INTERESTED journalists, journalism students and former participants gathered yesterday to mark the launch of the annual SeaWeb Sea Series Fellowship 2014 at The Fiji Times office in Suva.

The series runs for six months from April to September.

"Often we find that scientists are scared of the media — they live in a different environment and so do journalists, so we really hope that this fellowship bridges that gap — between scientists and journalists," said SeaWeb Australia Pacific executive director Scott Radway

Mr Radway officiated the opening of the annual fellowship for the first time in Fiji.

"Everybody wants to be talking but we have to break down these walls — SeaWeb AP gives you access to the specialists, it's about a network you want to build so invest in this process." he said.
