MESĀ 677. Management And Conservation Of Marine Ecosystems. 3 Credit Hours.

In this course students will learn how fisheries management works to achieve these objectives. The primary focus will be on how fisheries interact with marine ecosystems, including how particular fisheries management measures influence fishing mortality rates. Nevertheless, the ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management requires seeing fisheries as integrated systems, so it will also be necessary to discuss social, economic and legal aspects of fisheries management.
