As global populations continue to grow and climate change alters the marine environment, marine fisheries will come under increasing pressure, especially considering that the majority of people in coastal developing nations depend upon fisheries as their main source of protein. However, fisheries also have negative impacts on marine species, habitats and ecosystem processes, and on other species such as marine mammals, seabirds and reptiles. For this reason, conservation of the marine environment is essential if we are to succeed in achieving sustainable use of marine natural resources and needs to be integrated into an ecosystem-based approach to management. These issues are central to international and national policy and law focused on the sustainable development goals, and address, food security, human welfare, life below water, poverty, health and safetyThis course will provide students with the broad training necessary to develop a systems based perspective and understanding of the key elements of contemporary natural resources, fisheries and conservation science and how these disciplines are inter-related, integrating both natural and social science approaches.
