Perfect catch! Check out EEMB 2420 Fisheries Ecology, Policy & Conservation
In this course, we will review the basic biology and ecology of fisheries species, ranging from how to sample fish, from how to capture them to sampling them and quantifying their growth, survival, population size, etc. We will cover traditional stock assessment methods as well as how fisheries science and management has evolved more recently to integrate community- and ecosystem-level information. Finally, we will review how fisheries and fishers are managed, their involvement in the management process, and the future of fishing and fisheries in the U.S. and elsewhere. This course is a seminar, and thus is very interactive in using class discussions, worksheets, debates, and presentations to foster a deeper understanding of fisheries issues.
