The aim of the Fish Stocks Assessment / Fishing Technology course is to provide fellows with good understanding of fish catching methods and how it interacts with the fish behaviour, an in-depth knowledge on common stock assessment methods and their application. At the end of this part of the 6-7-week training course, fellows will have gained hands-on experience working with data, designing research, and applying various stock assessment methodologies.
The course is split up into two 3-week parts. At the end of the first part which is a joint Fish Technology and Stock Assessments module, fellow either continue into Stock Assessment module (Reykjavík) or go deeper into practical aspects of the Fish Technology (Ísafjörður).
In 2018 the course will run for six to seven weeks, starting on the 21th of October. During each module the fellows will attend lectures, work on practicals related to the material and submit them for evaluation by the lecturers.
