|Exploring Priorities for Marine Environmental Research on BC’s Coasts||9am – 12pm
2pm – 4:30pm
|June 11, June 12||TBA||In 2015, the BC Salmon Farmers Association developed the Marine Environmental Research Program (MERP), committing $1.5 million in research funds between 2015 and 2020, to be utilized in collaborations with government, academic and independent research institutions. The purpose of the program has been to gain a better understanding of the marine environment and B.C.’s wild marine species, particularly wild salmon stocks, and to develop research partnerships. Priorities to guide decisions on project funding were set through a series of workshop consultations.
In partnership with the BC Seafood Expo, the Association will conduct a workshop to discuss priorities for this important initiative. The workshop will be an opportunity for researchers, government and industry stakeholders to share their expertise and evaluate research priorities.
