||College of Science and Engineering
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 fisheries management outcomes will be developed.
- demonstrate knowledge of the biological, economic, social and legislative basis for
- discuss the range of processes used to manage fisheries in tropical regions;
- apply fisheries management theory and methods to analysing real-world fisheries issues;
- reflect on your own understanding of biological, social, economic, and legislative
dimensions of fisheries, and how these dimensions can be analysed and combined to
achieve positive outcomes in fisheries management.
