IDCE 30216 - Sustainable Fisheries Management

This course explores the complexities of marine and freshwater fisheries and aquaculture, including basic fish science and monitoring, policy and regulation. The emphasis is on vulnerable fish stocks under international multilateral treaties and policies. A range of scales and perspectives will be used: small-scale fisheries and communities; international fisheries and the Law of the High Seas; and aquaculture including shell fish, shrimp and salmon.  Students will use case studies from specific fish treaties as the basis for team research on sustainable fisheries science and policy.  The course is highly interdisciplinary and deals with national and international controversial topics such as fish science and monitoring, marine sanctuaries and IUU (illegal, un-flagged and unregulated) fisheries.
