Integrative science

Effective management of aquatic resources often requires combining multiple technical measures (e.g. harvest regulation, habitat management and hatchery enhancement), integrating biological/technical with social/economic considerations, and creating reciprocal links between research and management. We develop integrative concepts, tools and processes that allow scientists and stakeholders to ‘put the pieces together’.
