Offshore Fisheries Studies

Offshore Fisheries Studies
  • Transatlantic survey studying differences in mesoplagic fish, plankton and fish larvae, and hydroacoustics
  • Ocean conditions due to climate change and how they impact the biogeography, dynamics and behaviour of deep-sea continental slope fishes
  • Spatial dynamics of the Grand Banks and Newfoundland and Labradors’ northeast coast flatfish 
  • Northern cod offshore overwintering survey, funded by the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture and  Fisheries and Oceans Canada
  • Northern cod spawning, condition and mortality (tank experiment), funded by the Harris Centre at Memorial University, the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada
  • Study of impacts of fisheries closures on biodiversity, fisheries productivity and management around the world, with a local focus on the Hawke "box" off Labrador (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Capture Fisheries Network Program)
  • Acoustic surveying of pelagic zone within protocol of annual Fisheries and Oceans Canada fall multi-species bottom trawl survey, funded by Fisheries and Oceans Canada
