All of these energy-using products must meet federal energy efficiency standards in order to be imported into Canada or manufactured in Canada and shipped from one province to another. The Regulations continue to apply to these products if they are incorporated into a larger unit or machine, even when that unit or machine is an unregulated product.
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.
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.
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.
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).
The UINR forestry division strives for an environmentally sound way to use our natural resources while creating employment for members of our communities and further strengthening relationships between local industry and Mi’kmaq people.
