    Seminar: Salmon and their management – new perspectives under changed conditions, Stockholm, Sweden

    Fisheries management has been on the agenda for decades, but as conditions are altered the important aspects change. For Baltic Sea salmon the drastic decrease in off shore commercial fisheries has allowed for increased catches in coastal fisheries and a fast development of salmon trolling, both by individual anglers and recreational companies. Increased spawning runs in naturally reproducing salmon may allow for intensified angling in rivers, while in regulated rivers large quantities of salmon have been found to accumulate downstream hydropower dams. How should we manage salmon under these novel conditions?

    The seminar is hosted by the Royal Swedish Academy of Agriculture and Forestry.

    ICES training: Social science methods for natural scientists, Copenhagen, Denmark

    ICES is hosting a training course on social science methods for natural scientists.

    ​Research projects are increasingly interdisciplinary enterprises often with a strong emphasis on stakeholder participation and engagement. As a result natural scientists are being called upon to engage with a broader set of scientific and societal stakeholders and operate in new and challenging environments. In this changing professional context, gaining appropriate research skills is becoming a necessity.

    What this means in practice is finding new ways to collaborate, communicate, and engage with stakeholders (in our case fishers), managers and policy makers to broaden the knowledge base and increase the policy relevance of our work. As a result there is a need for targeted training in social science research methods for natural scientists.

    By way of professional introduction to the topic, this course will provide ‘hands on’ guidance on the basics required to navigate this challenging landscape. Employing a participant-led ‘learning by doing’ approach the facilitators will guide the participants step by step through the basics of social science methods such as interviewing, participant observation, mapping etc., in a supportive and interactive process designed to develop confidence and capacities.

    Application deadline: 1 September 2015
