FLBEIA is a multi-stock and multi-fleet simulation model that describes a fishery system under a Management Strategy Evaluation (MSE) approach. The model is designed with the aim to facilitate the bio-economic evaluation of management strategies.
The general objective of the course is to train researchers of fisheries management in the use of FLBEIA library. The course will introduce the structure of FLBEIA and familiarize users with the available procedures and methods. The course will be mostly practical with thematic lectures (smart conditioning, management measures, multi-stock and multi-fleet simulations, Shiny app, …) followed by some time for practice. These sessions will equip participants with the knowledge, skills, and quantitative tools to undertake MSEs on their own fisheries systems. In the last day, there will be time to assist the participants in the development of their own case studies.
The course is designed for a maximum of 20 participants.
The working language is English.
Participants are expected to be familiar with fisheries models, and fluent in the R statistical language.
Participants are required to bring their own laptops (Windows, Linux).
