Learning outcomes To train the students not following the AEH specialty in Rennes in the management of exploited marine living resources, taking into account integrated coastal management by the ecosystem approach to fisheries.
Aims Teaching will focus on a comprehensive approach to the exploitation of marine living resources, taking into account the traditional approaches to fisheries using global, structural and stock recruitment models, the role of the environment in the process of reproduction and, for the short-cycle species, the development of new tools (biological indicators, Marine Protected Areas) to improve upon the strict control on fisheries to place these activities within the wider framework of an ecosystem approach to fisheries.
