About

Fisheries Management and Conservation at University of Miami supports the management of marine resources by providing society with quantitative knowledge and modeling of the natural and anthropogenic processes that regulate the dynamics and functioning of fishery ecosystems and by providing predictions on the future behavior of such systems.

Overview

The Fisheries Management and Conservation track at University of Miami is a unique, academic program that allows students to develop the professional skills required to be a fishery scientist with curriculum options in various relevant areas of interest, such as fishery management, fishery surveys, and quantitative fisheries. 

Respectively, students will learn about the processes influencing fisheries management and the development of fisheries policy alternatives, develop knowledge about the statistical design and implementation of fishery surveys and monitoring programs, and apply advanced statistical and mathematical modeling tools in support of fishery stock assessments. Graduates with these skills find employment in government agencies, such as the National Marine Fisheries Service, state agencies, Fishery Councils, Non-Governmental Organizations, and regional NOAA laboratories.

Highlights

The Master of Professional Science (MPS) degree prepares students for science careers in industry, government, and non-profit organizations, where employment demands are growing. MPS degrees were developed and implemented nationally in response to employer demands for well-rounded, highly trained employees with a breadth of knowledge and practical skills to address emerging environmental issues and improve the management of natural and cultural resources.
