What I can do

 

DANKERT SKAGEN

Fisheries Science Consultant

If you want independent and fair scientific guidance on assessment and management of fish stocks, this is what I can do for you:

Working as a one-man business, I am available for assignments:

 

  • of small and medium magnitude (up to a few man months),
  • as stand-alone jobs or as participant in project teams
  • at a reasonable price.

 

Main fields:

  • Fish stock assessments:
    • Evaluate data, outline limitations and suggest improvements.
    • Advise on methodology
    • Perform assessments

 

  • Management strategies:
    • Design and simulation testing of decision rules
    • Provide simulation software
    • Evaluate proposed rules with respect to performance and compatability with international standards

 

  • Teaching and training in fish stock assessment and managment advice
  • Participation in, or chairing assessment teams and working/study groups
  • Review of assessment and management plan evaluation work
  • Advise on likely developments in stocks and fishing opportunities.

 

Key principles for my work:

  • Fair, neutral, balanced
  • Know what really matters and stick to essentials
  • Know the limitations and find solutions
  • Dialogue
  • Get the job done.
