(19th September 2016)

Assessing the status of fish populations stock is a science by itself, and is needed to understand safe harvesting limits to help conserve marine ecosystems and maintain the sustainability of aquatic food resources. Good stock assessments require high quality datasets and robust models to estimate biological parameters. In order to tackle these challenges, BlueBRIDGE developed a service assisting interdisciplinary teams of scientists in particularly relevant phases of the stock assessment process and data dissemination.
Find out how BlueBRIDGE can support stock assessment by joining our workshop on Wednesday 21st September "Data Management Services to support Stock Assessment".
