The Biological Basis of Fisheries Science

The course is based on themes that show marine ecology and oceanography as an integrated part of fisheries science.


New and pertinent topics may vary from year to year but basic themes include trophic relationships, population concepts, recruitment processes, distribution and migration, and climatic effects. Special attention is paid to populations in boreal and arctic waters. At the start of the course the student must have basic knowledge in aquatic ecology and fish biology at the university level. The course is particularly relevant for MSc and PhD students.
