Sub-program 1.1.4 - Fisheries Science Collaborative Program
The activities of the commercial fishery offer the Department a significant and unique opportunity to obtain fisheries science data related to the abundance and distribution of the fisheries resource. Through collaborative science activities with the Atlantic fishing industry, the Fisheries Science Collaborative Program enables the capture of this data and enhances core stock assessment activities while contributing to the knowledge base that supports resource management decisions. Collaborative initiatives with the Atlantic fishing industry are reviewed on an annual basis to ensure that projects are aligned with fisheries science priorities and conservation requirements.
