Event Details:

The Canadian Centre for Fisheries Innovation will host a two-day conference in Gander on November 28 and 29 on the future cod fishery in Newfoundland and Labrador.

With snow crab and shrimp populations dwindling and groundfish stocks growing, the industry has an opportunity to create a vital, value-driven industry based on cod that will attract people in search of fulfilling and rewarding careers. Well-respected international experts will come together in Gander to present a comprehensive package of information to help prepare industry for these changes in our fish resources.

The conference's objective is to shed light on the status and trends of the resources, the effects of climate change, the global supply of
white-flesh fish, cod markets, buying and selling cod products, and profiles of the province’s industry and of seafood producing industries elsewhere.

Registration for the event, which is being held in the Quality Hotel and Suites, Gander, is $200. The fee will cover costs for all breaks, lunches and one dinner during the conference.
