Workshop Announcement

As part of a series of multidisciplinary workshops under the theme Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013+ (see, we are planning a workshop on Chesapeake Fisheries that will explore issues of the Chesapeake Bay fisheries at both an ecological and economic point of view. The oyster population will serve as one motivating example for the workshop, but we will also consider issues involving blue crabs, rockfish, striped bass, etc. Workshop themes will include ecology and population dynamics, and commercial and management issues. Other themes will be natural resource modeling, and sustainable fisheries. The workshop will include invited talks, a poster session, panel discussions, and outings on the Chesapeake Bay to explore workshop themes first hand.
