Training courses in fish stock assessment: the past and the future.

Ideally, all countries with major marine and/or inland capture fisheries should have a few scientists specialized in stock assessment techniques to lead research programs and to analyze the results for management and development purposes. An aim of both FAO and ICLARM is to establish such a well-trained core of staff in each country, who can then teach others in their neighborhood, through national courses or by participating in working parties for the assessment of specific stocks.
