Fisheries

With the recent collapse of many fish populations along with a number of new species being listed as endangered, the science of fisheries is now more important than ever. The ability to understand aquatic ecosystems and evaluate options for sustainable fishing and aquaculture is dependent on data and data analysis. GenStat data analysis software is the only package of its kind to concentrate on the life sciences and provide tailored analyses for sectors within your industry.
