Courses and Programs [Memorial University Newfoundland, MUN]

Publisher: 
Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN)

This is a graduate level course open to students in the Masters of Marine Science program and other graduate programs at Memorial University. The goal of the course is to provide students with a general but broad understanding of the data, methods and models used by stock assessment scientists and fisheries research. The course covers the basic quantitative methods and models used in fisheries, including data inputs and models. Emphasis is placed on how fish stocks and fisheries respond under exploitation, biomass dynamic models, age structured models, and acoustic and trawl surveys.

Fisheries Conservation Group [Memorial University Newfoundland, MUN]

Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN)

The Fisheries Conservation Group is a research group created at the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University in 1996, to develop an independent fisheries research and training program with a focus on the fisheries ecosystems of the Northwest Atlantic.

Biology 3714: Estuarine Fish Ecology Field Course [Memorial University Newfoundland, MUN]

Publisher: 
Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN)

Community structure, function and distribution of northern coastal fishes in fjords and estuarine environments. Emphasis on sampling, field techniques, taxonomy, quantitative characterization, adaptations and habitat relationships. A comparative approach will contrast fish communities from deepwater, estuarine, near shore and freshwater habitats.

Investigation of Local Fisheries Resources of the Labrador Coast [Memorial University Newfoundland, MUN]

Publisher: 
Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN)

Dr. Joe Wroblewski and his graduate students are investigating local fisheries resources of the southeastern Labrador coast which are utilized by coastal communities, but which have not been scientifically documented. We are working with Labrador residents to study the ecology of these living marine resources. We have focused on bay cod and Icelandic scallop, specifically to understand the productivity of the wild stocks and the potential for aquaculture (Wroblewski et al., 1998).

Fish Population Restoration [Memorial University Newfoundland, MUN]

Publisher: 
Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN)

Dr. Wroblewski has been conducting research on a new method of marine fish population restoration, termed "enhancement of reproductive potential" or ERP (Wroblewski, et al., 1996; Wroblewski, et al., 1999; Wroblewski and Hiscock, 2002). This entails trapping late juvenile and young adult fish from the wild, increasing their growth and fecundity by feeding them in sea pens, and then returning the fish to their natural habitat to spawn. Hatchery based enhancement programs have met with criticism regarding genetic changes in cultured populations, and the fitness of released fish.

Fisheries Oceanography Group, FOG [Memorial University Newfoundland, MUN]

The Atlantic cod of the Grand Banks of Newfoundland were once a major food source for Europeans and North Americans. France and Portugal began fishing the Grand Banks in the early 1500s, joined by England during the 1600s. Spain, the former Soviet Union, Poland and Canada harvested great quantities of cod with dragnet trawlers during the latter part of the 20th century. In 1992 the northern cod population finally succumbed to decades of overfishing and several years of recruitment failure (poor reproductive success), due to natural climate change in the marine environment.
