This subject evaluates the grand challenges in fisheries science and management, with an emphasis on tropical fisheries and societies. Issues such as food security, resource sharing, environmental effects of fishing, fishery induced selection, and many others will be considered. Students will attend weekly seminars from leading researchers, managers and industry agents speaking on current fisheries issues. Students will then discuss the context, results and impact of issues presented with guest speakers and peers. The subject develops students' perspectives on global and small-scale fisheries topics, promoting a multi discipline approach and evaluation of stakeholder's needs and potential solutions. In addition to major assessment tasks, students are expected to spend 3-4 hours preparing for each week's session. Weekly reading plans and preparation questions are provided.
