The training course lasted for 21 days. A total of 72 participants joined in the training, including officials and technicians in fishery administration, scientific research or technology extension under the Ministry of Marine Resources of Eritrea as well individuals from related enterprises or farms. Apart from the officially registered participants, the program also attracted many other local people to sit in the lectures, for accumulatively over 100 person-times. Based on the local realities in terms of fisheries development, Chinese experts designed and successively carried out six modules of teaching and experimental practice, with the themes of "construction of fishery management system", "industrial technology of marine capture fisheries", "marine aquaculture", "fish nutrition and feed development", "fish disease prevention and control", and "processing technology of aquatic products", which has enabled not only the successful dissemination of the advanced fishery technologies that China has accumulated but also the efficient sharing of China’s experience and development philosophies.
