May 11-22, 2015
Juneau Center of School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, UAF, Juneau, Alaska

A hands-on introduction to the methods used to survey stocks and study ecological patterns and
processes in the marine environment. Class will consist of a series of group field exercises conducted
in local marine habitats in Southeast Alaska. These exercises will emphasize a variety of sampling
methods for documenting patterns of distribution and abundance, experimental designs for testing
hypotheses, and statistical interpretation of results. These skills are fundamental to most basic and
applied research in marine ecology & fisheries. Thus this course provides an essential foundation for
a professional career in these areas. 3 credits
