Sustainable Management of Marine Resources



This course will provide an overview to the structure and functioning of marine ecosystems, and acquaint students with the basic biology and field techniques required to successfully and sustainably manage marine populations. This course will expose students to a number of challenges facing marine ecosystems, and will provide an opportunity to discuss activities, approaches and strategies that can be used to solve these challenges. While many examples and scenarios discussed will be based on regional issues, the course will emphasize a global perspective to marine conservation issues and how regional differences in problems and solutions exist. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of using sound science to generate successful management strategies.
