Application of advanced field methods and data analysis to assess the status of fisheries and aquatic habitats.
AQFI 301 is an intensive field-focused course that introduces students to methodology used to assess the status of fisheries and aquaculture systems. A five-day introductory series of lectures and laboratories is followed by an eight-day field course. This paper is entirely internally assessed. The field course is based at a marae and an introduction to tikanga (custom) and kawa (protocol) at the marae and around fisheries will be provided. Methods for assessing growth in key species, commonly used monitoring designs and practical limitations presented when monitoring aquatic systems will be introduced. This paper may be taken by Distance Learning.
