Fins, Fishes, & Fisheries

Dates: June 9-13, 2019
Registration opens January 28, 2019

Students are fascinated by fish, especially sharks.  This fascination offers an opportunity to engage students in many topics, including structure and processes, diversity, adaptations, population dynamics, human impacts, and sustainability.  Join us for this multi-day workshop to learn more about the biology of fish, our Gulf fish species, how scientists study fish, fisheries management, aquaculture and seafood sustainability. We’ll explore a variety of fish collection techniques aboard DISL’s research vessels, we’ll visit local aquaculture facilities and learn about regional aquaculture successes, and we’ll hear about current research from fisheries scientists.  We’ll try our hands at being fishery managers and explore additional hands-on activities suitable for the classroom.

Cost: $100 registration fee, refundable upon completion of workshop (workshop tuition, meals and housing are FREE)

*Graduate credits available through UWA. Additional tuition applies. Please contact the DHP office for details.*
