Fish and Wildlife Census Techniques

The aim of the course is for the student to learn how to plan inventories, apply the most important inventory methods for fish and wildlife, to analyze and interpret the results from these investigations, and to understand the ethical aspects of handling and marking animals. Teacher-supported training allows the students to plan, practice, compile and present the results from a selection of census techniques. An overview of current Swedish and European legislation and organization is presented concerning the handling of free-living animals in research. In a number of lectures, ethical issues like stress, anxiety, pain or suffering during handling, as well as organizational issues are discussed. Methods for anaesthesia of animals as well as sampling and injection methods are demonstrated and practiced.
