BSc Minor Marine Living Resources

The Minor

Global climate change affects living resource communities and influences the balance between resources, their exploitation and other ecosystem services in coastal areas, seas and oceans. A sustainable, responsible exploitation of marine resources requires therefore knowledge of regulatory frameworks and proper governance. This minor integrates concepts and analytical techniques from widely different scientific areas such as marine biology, marine ecology, aquaculture and fisheries and marine policy.

This minor offers a window for undergraduate students from Wageningen University and Universities of Professional Education to explore and prepare for a potential specialisation at MSc level in the area of Aquaculture and Fisheries, Marine Biology, Management of Marine Ecosystems, Marine Governance or Environmental Sciences.
