Summary

The Master of Fisheries Policy degree is designed specifically for fisheries or environmental policy officers and mid-level managers or enforcement officers, or those wanting to pursue a career in fisheries and marine resources management.

Fisheries Policy addresses international, regional and national frameworks for sustainable fisheries management. It involves the important global issues of the links between fisheries and food security, and the tensions between the conservation of marine living resources for the future benefit of humankind and the economic benefits that fisheries can bring.

This degree provides a broad understanding of the law of the sea and the issues facing the fisheries sector, including fisheries management, international fisheries law, monitoring, control and surveillance (MCS), fish trade and regulatory compliance. You will look at the relationships between fisheries law, policy, science, economics and trade in the management of fisheries resources. Learn to analyse the legal, political and operational factors that make sustainable fisheries management so difficult and devise solutions to the problems.

Knowledge of international fisheries law and trade law will be cultivated, while developing high-level ethical judgments about the implications of the globalisation of fisheries for developing states.

  • Evaluate the relationships between fisheries law, policy, science, economics and trade in the management of fisheries resources;
