This Week's Highlights

Coastal Matters Speaker Series: Northern Cod Fisheries Improvement Project

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

Date: Thursday, March 17, 2016
Time: 12:30 – 1:20
Location: Forest Centre, Grenfell Campus, Corner Brook

What is the status of the Northern Newfoundland Cod population? One of the biggest threats to healthy ocean ecosystems is the demand for and procurement of unsustainable seafood. Last year WWF-Canada and the Fish, Food and Allied Workers Union (FFAW) started a harvester-driven project that aims to help an historic northern Newfoundland cod fishery return to health. This is a big deal because this fishery has been under a fishing moratorium since 1992. The stock is now showing good signs of recovery and if it’s managed right might grow to healthy levels.

ACAP Humber Arm invites you to join our next Coastal Matters presentation where Ms. Janice Ryan, Fisheries Advisor with WWF Canada will speak about WWF’s ocean conservation work in NL, with a focus on their exciting Northern Cod Fisheries Improvement Project, followed by a Q&A with the audience. This talk will take place 12:30 to 1:20pm, Thursday, March 17th in room 3019 of the Forest Centre, Grenfell Campus, Corner Brook.

As with all Coastal Matters presentations this session is free of charge and open to the public. RSVP’s not required. Tea and coffee will be available; feel free to bring your own bagged lunch. Please help us promote this session by forwarding this email to your contacts and/or displaying the attached poster at your workplace.

ACAP Humber Arm wishes to thank the NL Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture and Grenfell Campus for ongoing support of the Coastal Matter’s Speakers Series.
