This year, OGS, CNR, CMMI and APMARINE are organizing the next 5th Edition of the Advanced school on Multispecies Modelling , AMARE-MED2022, on 2-8th October in Larnaka, Cyprus.

This year’s school will focus on spatially explicit resource modelling and includes fishing fleet displacement, environmental variables and management rules. The first three days will be devoted to constructing a 2D Model of Intermediate Complexity for Ecosystems (MICE; Plaganyi et al., 2014) and will include handson fitting exercises of non-spatial and spatial single- and multi-species models using MLE, evaluation of projections and trade-off analysis. In the second part of the school (2 days), the Spatial Management of Demersal Resources for Trawl Fisheries (SMART; D’Andrea et al., 2020) will be used to identify fishing grounds, and project the effects of fleet management measures on fisheries displacement and resources. The course is highly technical with practical hands-on computer activities, assignments and programming.

Maximum number of participants: 30. Candidates must apply through the online form and will be selected on the basis of expertise, skills, interest.

There is no participation fee.
