Fisheries Oceanography - Winter 2014

Fisheries Oceanography investigates how the environment influences the distributions and abundances of marine vertebrate and invertebrate species. Results of fisheries oceanographic studies are used to increase understanding of fish and zooplankton life histories, predict recruitment to commercially harvested populations, reduce uncertainty in resource management decisions, and to decouple anthropogenic from natural effects on aquatic populations. This course will introduce students to the fundamentals of fisheries oceanography and enable the understanding of fish and zooplankton life histories, to identify physical factors influencing survival and recruitment, to interpret indices used to predict recruitment, and to critically evaluate scientific literature.
