The French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD) are seeking candidates for a PhD examining artificial intelligence for a better understanding of stock size and fishery dynamics in the Indian Ocean purse seine tropical tuna fishery.

The overarching objective of this study is to analyze a complex amalgam of fine scale environmental and French purse seine fishery data using artificial intelligence to more fully understand the intertwined dynamics of stock size fluctuations and changes in fishing and fish vulnerability, thereby improving our ability to estimate abundance of tunas for stock assessment.
