Reconciling Spatial Scales and Stock Structures for Fisheries Science and Management

Event Type Workshop
Date(s)(yyyy-mm-dd) Start: 2011-06-27 - End: 2011-06-28
Location University of New Hampshire - Institute for the study of Earth, Oceans and Space, United States
Short Title Spatial Scales Workshop
Summary Fishermen and scientists are continually learning that stock boundaries of marine species aren’t always what we once thought. Fishery managers often face dilemmas when ecological and management boundaries don’t coincide. This public workshop will explore how fisheries management can better use data on stock structure and ecological processes in achieving sustainable fishery resources. Costs and benefits of using increasingly detailed data in management will be discussed.
