Symposium on Big Data: Merging Data Science and Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences to Solve Big Problems

August 31 - September 3

Learn more about this FITS-hosted symposium “Merging Data Science and Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences to Solve Big Problems.” Advancing technologies and software have allowed us to collect and process enormous amounts of data (aka “big data”). Big data are data that are too large in volume, high in velocity, and/or varied in structure to share, manipulate, or analyze using traditional software tools or analytical techniques. The quantity and rate of data collection in some instances have outpaced our technological capabilities…

Symposium: Bayesian Inference: Applications and Interpretation

August 31 - September 3

Don't miss this outstanding FITS-supported symposium “Bayesian Inference: Applications and Interpretation.” Bayesian inference has become a common tool used by fisheries managers, scientists, and researchers. However, many are still learning about the utility of this tool to make decisions about their study system and appropriately handle messy ecological data. Bayesian inference permits modeling complex relationships, provides a transparent method of incorporating prior information, and model results provide a rich suite of information about the study system. This session will demonstrate…

Symposium: Marking, Tagging, and Tracking

August 31 - September 3

Last year, FITS helped plan a very successful, three-day symposium on marking, tagging, and tracking. We are excited to present another symposium on “Marking, Tagging, and Tracking.” Tracking data inform how individual organisms and populations distribute locally, utilize habitat, migrate over larger scales, and evolve over time. Analyzed carefully, these data may indicate changes in climate and land use, biodiversity, invasive species, predict spread of diseases or parasites, and correspond to effectiveness of stocking efforts. Successful approaches not only involve…
