MSCI 671 - Fisheries Population Dynamics


Fall (3) Latour

This course provides an introduction to the fundamental processes governing fish population dynamics, with an emphasis on the theory and practical application of models used to characterize the factors influencing population abundance. Topics include the theory of mortality, growth, stock-recruitment (compensation, depensation), surplus production, VPA, statistical catch-at-age, tagging, and the introductory aspects of multispecies and fisheries ecosystem models. Lectures are supplemented with readings from the primary literature and students receive hands-on experience with nonlinear parameter estimation through computer laboratory sessions using the statistical software package R.
