Focusing on the Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) of the world, this course will introduce the concept and practice of ecosystem-based management.

TOP REVIEWS FROM LARGE MARINE ECOSYSTEMS: ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT
Excellent course. Well structured and laid out. Learned alot and gained a new respect for those trying to run LME's
The marking criteria only really allowed for pass or fail, particularly the last assignment. It was almost impossible to award a mark between 80-100%. The mark scheme should be reviewed.
This is a really good overview of LME management. There is a lot of information presented and therefore useful material for future research and work. Liked it
Extremely interesting, and useful in mapping a better future for the planet. Only problem is the peer review process.
