Graduate Research Accelerator for Fisheries Science

Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), via the Partnership Fund is collaborating with Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) on the creation of a fund to support graduate research in fisheries science. MUN created three new research-based graduate programs at the Fisheries and Marine Institute: M.Sc, Fisheries Science (Fisheries Science and Technology); M.Sc, Fisheries Science (Stock Assessment) and Ph.D, Fisheries Science.

The objective is to produce world-class fisheries science graduates from a program where students and faculty pursue cutting-edge research questions that advance the science and practice of sustainable fisheries in Canada and abroad. They will conduct original research that advances the discipline of fisheries science, and graduates from the stock assessment stream will be prepared to produce work in this highly-quantitative field. Further, these trainees will be equipped with skills to mobilize the knowledge they generate through research, and to communicate it to relevant parties to inform the management and practice of fisheries. By merging the expertise of principal investigators from three research Centres within the School of Fisheries, trainees will develop expertise across the full value chain of fisheries -- from fundamental research into biology and ecology through to management, harvest technology, and post-harvest processing.
