Advanced Coastal Fisheries Management Laboratory
Co-requisite: FAS 5355
Description: This laboratory course is designed to offer students hands-on experience modeling fish population dynamics. The primary focus will be on the estimation of life history parameters and the development of rigorous quantitative models to assess fish populations using real data from regionally, federally, and internationally managed fish stocks. Students will apply the knowledge and skills learned during the semester to conduct an independent project with results presented in both written and oral reports.
