About us

The MARAM Group, based in the Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics at the University of Cape Town, is concerned with quantitative studies related to scientific recommendations for conservation measures governing the utilisation of South African and some other of the world's renewable marine resources. Over recent years, its work has been funded primarily through contract with the Cape Town-based Fisheries Branch of the South African Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, though funds have also been forthcoming from the South African National Research Foundation (NRF) and contract work for foreign Governments and Fishing Industry Associations.
