The course is run principally as an intensive field course, including a field camp and where possible, time at sea on AMC training vessels. Students will receive theoretical and practical training in current methods of collection of biological, ecological social and economic data using various data collection instruments. Students will also gain experience in evaluation of ecological characteristics including biodiversity, estimation of population size and anthropogenic impacts. Current methods of collection and assessment include underwater video, transects, trapping, trawling,netting and surveys.
