|Student Contribution Band:
||Sch of Earth & Environmental Sciences (pre 2015)
This subject examines the process of managing fisheries in tropical regions to ensure
positive outcomes for fish stocks, ecosystems and human communities. The paradigm
of fisheries as linked social-ecological systems will be used to develop an understanding
about how biology, economics, human communities and legislative factors all contribute
to outcomes in fisheries management. Case studies from tropical regions will be examined,
including industrial, artisanal and recreational fisheries. Practical skills in achieving
positive outcomes will be developed.
- understand the biological, economic, social and legislative basis for managing fisheries;
- appreciate the range of processes used to manage fisheries in tropical regions;
- develop skills relevant to achieving positive outcomes in fisheries management.
