Event Name: Marine Crustacean Stock Enhancement in the UK, Measuring Impact

Date, Venue: Friday 19th April 2013, Sennen Suite,Tremough Innovation Centre, Cornwall

Time: 10:00 ‚Äď 17:30

OVERVIEW

As global demand for fisheries products grows, it is becoming increasingly desirable to have a more complete academic understanding of how we can enhance and re-stock populations of high value species. Understanding impact is an essential element of any stocking program and will help to inform protocol development as well as monitoring overall effectiveness. This one day workshop aims to provide CUC partners and invited guests with an overview of previous assessment technologies used and examine the potential for using new genetic tools.
