Fish ageing

IMARES needs to maintain its expertise in fish ageing to deliver an internationally approved WOT programme. However, activities crucial for the maintenance of this expertise are not covered by WOT funding and have therefore been funded by KB-WOT since 2004.

The key expertise fish ageing is of crucial importance for all age-structured population dynamic research, such as stock assessments for management advice. Maintenance of this key expertise is achieved by training, exercise, international calibration, quality assurance and quality control.
