SLE343 provides students with a broad overview of domestic and global fisheries, fishing methods and varying tools for sustainable ecosystem- based fisheries management. Students will explore the science, policy and economics underlying management activities and the stakeholders involved. In this unit, students are provided the opportunity to interact with fisheries industry representatives and tap in to their professional expertise. This opportunity is invaluable for students as understanding the complexities associated with stakeholder engagement and handling the multifaceted issues that come with managing recreational and commercial fisheries and their associated habitats comes with years of experience in the field. Students are expected to work individually on assignment tasks and attend all lectures and field activities. The level of complexity of materials submitted by students for assessment should reflect a level three unit such that independent thought, evaluation of information and presentation of thoughts and ideas are commensurate with this level.


Fisheries stock assessment 50%, fisheries management evaluation report 15%, in-class test 35%
