Focusing on the Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) of the world, this course will introduce the concept and practice of ecosystem-based management. LMEs occupy areas of coastal ocean at least 200 000 km² or greater in size. These coastal waters produce 12.6 trillion USD in ecosystem goods and services annually and are vitally important for billions of people around the globe.

TOP REVIEWS FROM LARGE MARINE ECOSYSTEMS: ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT
Extremely interesting, and useful in mapping a better future for the planet. Only problem is the peer review process.
Great course but the volume levels of the videos need to be adjusted. Difficult to hear even at maximum volume.
This course deepened my understanding of large marine ecosystems, how they should be assessed and the best practices/strategies that should be implemented in order to successfully manage them.
This is a really good overview of LME management. There is a lot of information presented and therefore useful material for future research and work. Liked it
