This is an intermediate level course that demands previous knowledge of fish and fishery biology, including the utilization of basic assessment methods.
Biological population management often relies on the utilization of data or models. We will make scenario forecasts and analyze the outcomes of different management decisions. We address the increasing concern for the genetic and ecological consequences of fishing and aquaculture as well as the conservation management of a wide range of aquatic organisms and communities. Every year a new and controvercial issue forms the basis for special lectures, seminars and the final written assignment. Teaching is practical oriented, and requires active participation of the students in a number of tasks.
