Description

This course will provide an overview of the sustainably harvestable resources found in both aquatic and marine ecosystems. With an underpinning on the contemporary approaches toward habitat and population management, students will learn about capture and growth fisheries and aquaculture, emphasizing the contribution of these to the global food supply. Topics covered will include production methods, environmental and ecological impacts, best practice in growth, capture, and processing, and an overview of marketing of fisheries resources. Additional work will explore the impact of human populations on resource availability on health, as well as major issues connecting resource extraction and acquisition to environmental degradation. All work will build from basic ecological concepts covered in other coursework and be placed in the context of effective long-term management practices.
