Qualities properties of fish sauce made jack mackerel (Trachurns japonicus) at different salt concentrations (25~35%) for 240 days at fermentation temperature (
) were investigated. Total nitrogen content of the fish sauce made jack mackerel at 25% salt concentration after 240 day of fermentation was higher than those of 30%, 35% salt concentration. Total nitrogen content was increased under the same condition as fermentation temperature increased except at
. Amino nitrogen contents at 25% salt concentration after 240 day of fermentation at 35, 45,
were 949.3, 812.8 and 834.4 mg/100 g, respectively. Those at 25,
fermentation temperature were 811.2 and 614.8 mg/100 g, respectively. The amino acid nitrogen content at 30 and 35% salt concentration ware lower than 20% salt concentration and that after 240 day of fermentation at
was lowest. The volatile basic nitrogen content increased during fermentation as fermentation temperature increased. However, increasing salt concentration controlled the formation of volatile basic nitrogen. Histamine content of samples fermented at
after 240 days were 9~20 mg/kg showing that it was not significantly different among salt concentration. The results indicated that the controlled salt concentration and fermentation temperature could be used as a successful process for fish sauce of jack mackerel as an unused resource.

Journal of Fisheries and Marine Sciences Education, volume 24, issue 6, 2012, Pages 872~883
DOI : 10.13000/JFMSE.2012.24.6.872
Generally the determination of turning basin for vessels of entering & sailing in the berth has been considered in the design standard of harbor construction rules of the port. In this regard, the turning basin has been determined by the max size of entering vessel of the berth/port. But the size of turning basin may considered the ship`s maneuvering ability, operator`s skillful power, mooring equipments of the berth, arrangement of the fairway and the environment condition of weather & seas around the designated port area. So this paper suggested the optimum size of turning basin after studying the harbour design rules of the advanced marine countries and using by maneuvering simulator for turning basin size and also evaluated the design standard of harbor construction rules and minimum size of turning basin against ship`s length at the Gangjung civil/naval port of Jeju Island.

Issues and Solutions of Restructuring Private Universities
Choe, Ho-Seong ;
Journal of Fisheries and Marine Sciences Education, volume 24, issue 6, 2012, Pages 901~919
DOI : 10.13000/JFMSE.2012.24.6.901
The purpose of this study is to conceptualize some issues around university restructuring in Korea, and explore rational-practical solutions ensuring the survival of higher education institutes confronting many challenges like rapid decreasing rate of birth, global open market of higher education system, and the phenomena of concentration on capital city area etc.. In order to achieve study goals, higher education policies and provisions of past governments from DaeJung Kim`s to current MeongBak Lee`s were analyzed, and also characteristics and directions of university restructuring of each government were identified. Through this analysis, it was evident that the main concern of university restucturing discourse was primarily focused on how to make public universities have high level of competitiveness. On the other hand, private universities had been totally alienated from university restructuring discourse since 1990`s, despite their historical and great contributions to national development of our country. Based on some criticisms of educational policies of national government and partial revision proposal of the higher education act initiated by a few assemblymen, this study suggested eight solutions for developmental restructuring of private universities; constructing comprehensive framework of university restructuring, keeping market-friendly restructuring principle to allow universities take an autonomous position, revising methods, criteria and indexes of university evaluation, reducing the number of enrolling students, not the number of universities and colleges, a new policy to develop local universities allying with universities located at capital city area, differentiating private universities into two types of semi- or quasi-national university and complete autonomous university, legislating financial supports to private universities, and lastly, equal treatment of public and private universities in pursuit of half price tuition.

Journal of Fisheries and Marine Sciences Education, volume 24, issue 6, 2012, Pages 920~933
DOI : 10.13000/JFMSE.2012.24.6.920
Marine algal flora and community structure were investigated seasonally at four stations in Busan, in which coastal area and estuary affected by Nakdong river are involved, from February 2011 to October 2011. Total 78 species including 9 of cholophyta, 17 of phaeophyta and 52 of rhodophyta were found during the study period. Maximum and minimum species number were recorded at station 1(57 species) and at 3(32 species). As based on the cluster analysis, grouping pattern between the four stations was significantly affected by season and Nakdong river run off. At station 3 directly exposured on Nakdong river run off, species diversity was relatively low and dominant species were similar throughout four seasons. However, coverage at the station was relatively high because of Ulva bloom. This difference results from salinity and nitrates concentrations closely related with river runoff controlled according to precipitation. Marine algal coverage was high at lower salinity and higher nitrate concentration. In conclusion, the spatio-temporal distribution of benthic marine algae in estuary of Nakdong river was mainly determined by the precipitation and river run off with the seasons, whereas that in coastal area was seasonally affected by general physical, chemical, biological and dynamic factors.

DOI : 10.13000/JFMSE.2012.24.6.977
The purpose of this study was to help teachers increase the level of student`s school life satisfaction by comparing between the practical data of a group which have an accordant perception for class teacher`s discipline style perceived by between teacher him/herself and student with another group which have a discordant perception for class teacher`s discipline style perceived by between teacher him/herself and student. For this study, 1460 second grade special high school students in Pusan were selected. And 1273 students and 56 teachers` questionnaires were used for analysis, while 5 questionnaires went uncompleted. T-test and Multiple Regression Analysis were used for compiling statistics of collected data. The results of this study are as follows: First, perceptions about the teacher`s discipline style perceived by between teacher him/herself and student were different. Second, the levels of student`s school life satisfactions were different by two group. A group which has an accordant perception for class teacher`s discipline style perceived by teacher him/herself and student shows the high level of school life satisfaction than B group which has an discordant perception. Last, class teacher`s discipline style which affects the level of student`s school life satisfaction was different by the two group. These results suggest that to increase the level of student`s school life satisfaction, class teachers have to a mutual understanding first, and then approach their students with different discipline style by the level of their interactive relationship with their students.

Journal of Fisheries and Marine Sciences Education, volume 24, issue 6, 2012, Pages 989~1002
DOI : 10.13000/JFMSE.2012.24.6.989
The purpose of this study was to figure out adoption of curriculum autonomy policy by a middle school. To achieve the purpose, official documents accepted or produced by the school were examined regarding how much curriculum autonomy was given to the school. As well as, minutes on curriculum organization and implementation and interviews with significant figures in the school were analyzed to reveal how the school exerted its curriculum autonomy. The results indicated that superior educational administrative institution that had made decision on curriculum autonomy policy and promoted it constantly sent to the school official documents that required it to report what had been done. Such practices prevented the school from autonomous organization and implementation of curriculum. In addition, as most decisions on curriculum organization and implementation at school level was made by administrator and teachers with special position, most teachers remained at passive status to accept what had decided by them. Parents`committee did not exercise their rights by lack of expertise and passive attitude.

This study analyzed middle-aged woman volunteers` evaluations on their volunteering and its implications for the adult life-long education. The subjects were 126 women aged from 35 to 59 who enrolled in the volunteer centers in Busan, Korea. They participated in the survey of the volunteer effects and the factors that made them continue to volunteer. Survey said, middle-aged women volunteers perceived that they got positive feedback from others and themselves and it made them keep doing on volunteering. Based on their volunteering experiences, they reported the personal effects such as positivism, caring, volunteering capacity, industry, maturity and the family member`s effects such as positivism and participating in their volunteering. They also mentioned that they had positive and negative effects on family relationship such as family relation reinforcement and being indifferent to their own family. Based on the research findings, it was the emphasized that supports for volunteering of the middle-aged women that helps them to accomplish the developmental tasks in the middle age are necessary. A scheme of linkage between volunteering and the adult life-long education was also dealt with. Finally, the implications on the further studies in the field were discussed.
