Marine Habitat Mapping Research Group

The Marine Habitat Mapping Research Group of Memorial University is looking a various aspects of habitat mapping and works in partnership with Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) and Parks Canada to improve our understanding of critical marine habitats.

The group worked on the mapping of a number of critical regions in the Newfoundland and Labrador province, such as Newman Sound, Gilbert Bay MPA, Saglek and Nachvak fiords, etc.
