Great local opportunity! UWF Continuing Education class ?The ABCs of Fisheries Science and Management for Fishermen.? A 3 session course; 4/15, 4/22 and 4/29. Two hrs per session (6:30-8:30) $20 tuition, being held at the Bowden Building downtown.

Excerpt from the class description: ?Rules, regulations and limits: Is there sense to be made of fisheries management? Several fisheries issues in the northern Gulf of Mexico are very contentious among fishing groups, and between fishing groups and managers. One goal of this short course will be to separate common misconceptions from objective information with respect to fisheries issues in the northern Gulf?what data are collected?how data are analyzed to produce estimates of fish stock status?overfished vs. not overfished?overfishing occurring vs. not occurring?implications of the reauthorized Magnuson-Stevens Act?ways for fishermen to get involved in the management process??

UWF Professor, Dr Will Patterson, is the instructor. One of his current projects: Examination of red snapper fisheries ecology on the northwest Florida shelf; recent publication: Red Snapper Ecology and Fisheries on the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
