BI 335 - Fisheries Oceanography (SF)

Credits: (4 credits)

Fisheries Oceanography is the study of fish population dynamics in the context of human exploitation within the variable ocean environment. The productivity of fish stocks (and potential harvest) will depend on biological characteristics of the fish, ecological interactions with competitors, food and predators, and the variability of the physical environment driven by climate variability; this class explores the causes and effects of variability, and focuses on management alternatives to achieve the goal of sustainable fisheries management.

This is a Sustainability-Focused (SF)   course.
