FISHERIES CONSERVATION CHAIR
The Fisheries Conservation Chair is a research group created at Memorial
University of Newfoundland in 1996 to develop an independent fisheries research
program to complement and scrutinize Government programs and provide an
integrative focus for fisheries research at the University. The Chair is
funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada,
the Provincial Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture, the Department of
Fisheries and Oceans, and Fishery Products International.
The Fisheries Conservation research program focuses on several aspects
of fisheries science and management, including:
∙ The collapse and rebuilding of groundfish stocks in
∙ Sea-going research.
∙ Using high-technology to measure the ocean and its
fishes (acoustics, electronic sensors, tagging).
∙ A comparative ecosystem approach to fisheries management
∙ Working with the fishing industry.
In addition, the Fisheries Conservation Chair provides a wide range of
opportunities and training for students at the graduate level in fisheries
science. An important element of this training is experience at sea with
scientific research, research vessels, and fisheries. Students use and develop
the latest technology to measure ocean ecosystems and fish populations.
