  3. understanding of fishery management measures to meet biodiversity as well as fisheries policy targets.
By the end of the course, the participants will
  • be aware of international biodiversity policy targets and relevant fisheries management measures;
  • understand the data-collection needs for different management measures;
  • be familiar with the factors that affect the ability of various management measures to keep fisheries and their impacts on biodiversity sustainable ecologically and economically;
  • be familiar with indicators and reference points, both biological and economic, as tools in fishery management to meet policy targets.
