The 2024 edition of the Advanced school on Multispecies modelling Approaches for ecosystem based marine REsource management in the MEDiterranean Sea (AMARE-MED 2024) is taking place in Lisbon this August.

WHERE and WHEN: This edition of AMARE-MED will be held in Lisbon (Portugal) in the premises of the Portuguese Institute for Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA) from 28 July to 3 August 2024.

TEACHERS: Two outstanding lecturers Prof. André Punt (School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, University of Washington, Seattle, USA) and Dr. Lewis Barnett (NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center, USA).

CONTENT: This year’s school will focus on modelling trawl survey data using traditional and geostatistical methods and their use in multispecies models for fisheries management. Prof Punt and Dr Barnett will develop a series of lectures and practical exercises from the analysis of trawl survey data with spatio-temporal geostatistical models to the development of multispecies fisheries models.

FEE: there is no application fee.

SUPPORT: In the framework of initiatives for increasing capacity building, the AMARE-MED will support the participation of 2-3 scientists from non-EU Mediterranean and Black Sea countries. Additional fellowships will be provided by the National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics (OGS) through the project The Laboratory on Quantitative Sustainability (TLQS).

DEADLINE: Application deadline is 25 May 2024. Candidates have to apply through the online form (attached below).

SELECTION: Thirty applicants will be selected on the basis of experience, skills and demonstrated interest in quantitative fisheries management.

AMARE-MED 2024 is jointly organized by the Portuguese Institute for Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA, Portugal), National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics (OGS, Italy), National Research Council (CNR, Italy), IMR (Norway Institute of Marine Research).
