III Workshop on Age-Structured Models in Fishery Economics and Bioeconomic Modelling


University of Southern Denmark
Esbjerg, Denmark
9-10th of April 2014 

This workshop aims to bring together researchers in academic and research institutes to share new developments, and challenges on the use of age-structure models of fish and other harvestable renewable resources. It provides an opportunity to update, review, discuss and evaluate how modelling harvestable populations based on their age-structure affects our understanding of key natural and policy issues on natural resource management. The first workshop in the series was held in 2009 at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway and the second workshop was held in 2011 at University of Vigo, Spain. As a follow-up this Third Workshop on Age-structured Models in Fishery Economics and Bioeconomic Modelling will be hosted by the Centre of Fisheries & Aquaculture Management & Economics (FAME), University of Southern Denmark.

The organizing committee is Jose Mª Da Rocha (Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona), Anders Skonhoft (Norwegian University of Science and Technology), Olli Tahvonen (University of Helsinki), Julia Touza (University of York), Martin Quaas (University of Kiel) and Niels Vestergaard (University of Southern Denmark).
