Memorial’s graduate diploma and master’s program in marine studies will enhance your work or career progression by providing a wealth of knowledge with real world applications. You will develop, through formal education, those skills that are essential to the management of fisheries resources.

While focused primarily on the North Atlantic, the program also deals with major world fisheries as well as quantitative assessment methods. The program is applicable to all facets of the industry, and is a must for individuals involved in the day-to-day business of fisheries resource management locally, nationally, or internationally. The programs are offered through Memorial’s Fisheries and Marine Institute – Canada’s most comprehensive centre for education and training for the ocean industries.
