Fish and Wildlife Management

The course focus is knowledge of fish and wildlife management with a focus on harvested fish, mammals and birds. After finishing the course you will be able to plan the sustainable management of selected fish and wildlife species based on a consideration of their population biology, habitat requirements, predation, harvest, the goals of society, and other aspects, communicate recommendations for the management of fish or wildlife populations at a level appropriate for professional managers, scientists and the public. You will receive training in efficiently finding the information needed for management of fish and wildlife populations. Field excursions illuminate selected problems in current management or habitat restauration. The course includes realistic exercises designed to help students acquire and develop proficiency in communication skills needed to be successful managers of fish and wildlife populations in the real world.

Information from the course leader

Dear students,

Welcome to the 2024 course on Fish and Wildlife Management! We will begin classes on the 20th of March, in person, on campus at SLU Umeå. A preliminary schedule is posted here, including all red-listed/holiday days where no class will be happening. Our typical class time is scheduled for the room Sälgen between 9:00-12:00. However, there will be some deviations from this schedule for field trips and days where you will work on projects and not necessarily need to be in class. The schedule will be finalized closer to the start of the term.

The course is divided in three major modules; fish management, ungulate management, and international wildlife management. We will also be learning in smaller modules about bird managment, urban wildlife managemt, carnivore management, wildlife mismanagement, and science communication. Each major module will contain lectures and a project part with data. This course will involve both individual and group assignments.

I will keep you updated on new information about the course as we get closer to the start!

All the best.

Erin McCallum
