Lecturer: Marine Resources Management (AFI32806), Wageningen University (2020, 2021)
The course deals with the management of human impacts on living renewable resources in marine, coastal and large freshwater ecosystems. The focus is on impacts on marine and freshwater ecosystems through fishing for food and income. But there are also direct and indirect impacts on and feedbacks from ecosystems as tourism, sport fishing, wind energy parks, conservation measures such as Marine Protected Areas and pollution. Effective management of the use of marine ecosystems requires a social–ecological systems approach to analyse problems arising from the interactions between the ecosystem and the decisions of resource users.
