ES 64500 - Applied Research: Fisheries Science


(2) Applied Research: Fisheries Science provides instruction, demonstration and exercises in population sampling, assessment and modeling, as applied to fishery resources. Admitted students will already be involved in an ongoing fisheries-related study. Each student will work with faculty and student-colleagues to refine their research and communication skills. The course context is current trends in international and national fisheries science with a focus on North Pacific and Alaska fisheries. Emphasis will be placed on interdisciplinary application of research results (e.g. food sustainability, law, policy and socioeconomics) and state-of-the art fisheries assessment software packages (implemented in R and Automatic Differentiation (AD) Model Builder will be explored). The course is designed to train students to “have the ability to conduct high-quality scientific research in stock assessment, fishery population dynamics and related fields” (U.S. Dept.
