Are you interested in how it is possible to combine lakes, watercourses and seas full of life, with sustainable fisheries? Do you have general eligibility requirements for university? Then maybe a generally evening-based course about hot, current sustainability topics could suit you this coming autumn?

At the course you will meet lecturers with different specialties regarding fisheries, not only marine biologists, limnologists and other natural scientists, but also experts within other fields.

Broad overview on sustainable fisheries

“Where have all the fishes gone” gives you basic understanding of the influence of fisheries on ecosystems, and of the function and significance of fisheries for human societies, in Sweden and globally.

The course provides a broad overview of current and future challenges for sustainable fisheries. You will also learn how fish stocks are managed today, and how they could be managed in the future.
