Academic contributions to natural resource management

Esta charla será en inglés.

This talk will provide examples of how one academic department contributes to natural resource management through both our teaching and our research programs.  The School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences is an academic department within the College of the Environment that has roughly 25 faculty,  100 graduate students and 100 undergraduate majors.  A high portion of our research is in the applied problems of aquatic biology and conservation,  from habitat protection to fisheries management to aquaculture.   I will describe two research programs,  each involves several faculty, students and staff working closely with scientists in government and with industry and NGOs to bring scientific knowledge to the management of important resources.  The first project centers around understanding the status of fish stocks and the relationship between their management and the biological, social and economic outcomes.  The second project centers around aquatic ecosystems of Alaska that provide a major commercial fishery, as well as recreational fisheries and wildlife.
