Research Focus

The Centre for Fisheries Ecosystem Research sets itself apart from others in Canada by offering more direct involvement in fisheries research including:

  • time at sea research,
  • use of advanced technologies for fisheries such as acoustic and geographic information systems, and
  • a focus on the North Atlantic and Newfoundland and Labrador fisheries


The Centre has four major research nodes:


Each research node has several components - most build on current or past research strengths, others are new. Rebuilding fish stocks and productive ecosystems is central to most ongoing and future research.
