Publisher acronym: 

This is a graduate level course open to students in the Masters of Marine Science program and other graduate programs at Memorial University. The goal of the course is to provide students with a general but broad understanding of the data, methods and models used by stock assessment scientists and fisheries research. The course covers the basic quantitative methods and models used in fisheries, including data inputs and models. Emphasis is placed on how fish stocks and fisheries respond under exploitation, biomass dynamic models, age structured models, and acoustic and trawl surveys. The course is heavily dependent upon computer simulations done by the students, primarily in EXCEL. Students are expected to both manipulate models given to them and to begin to create their own during the course.
