IS14E:
New Technologies and Methods in Fisheries Science I Posters

Session ID#: 85075

Session Description:
Appropriately managing fishery stocks for a sustainable future requires integrating data from disparate sources and ocean science disciplines, and fisheries scientists and managers face many challenges. In particular, measuring the natural variability in density, abundance, and productivity of fisheries populations across space and time and estimating mortality of target and non-target species prove often prove to be labor-intensive, expensive, and fraught with uncertainty. However, as consumer electronics become cheaper, faster, and more portable, fisheries scientists have access to new technologies and more computing power to better estimate these population parameters. In this session, we hope to bring together fisheries scientists and managers, as well as researchers from other ocean science disciplines, to discuss new technologies and methods currently in use and in development.
