Issues in Fisheries Research: Seminars

Credit Value

3 credits, Section 001


Terms 1 and 2, Public Seminar on Fridays from 11 am-12 pm in AERL 120.

Weekly discussion session for credit students on Fridays 2-3 pm in AERL 107.


IOF members and others interested in the topics are encouraged to attend the weekly seminar, and the coffee break prior to the seminar in the AERL foyer.

Official credit students are expected to attend every seminar in both terms, as well as the discussion session in both terms. Seminars typically last an hour, though questions may go longer. The discussion sessions will review and critique the seminars and discuss what makes for good presentations.

Students enrolled in the class are expected to give individual seminar presentations, typically in Term 2 of the course. Grading will be based 40% on the student oral presentation and 60% on written comment and critique of each of the seminars by outside speakers, a written peer review of a publication related to one of the seminars, and class participation.
