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]

Publisher: 
Memorial University of 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.

Family business and its unique characteristics is an area that has received relatively little research. Existing research needs to be augmented to assist families and professionals in dealing with issues facing family businesses. We have professors dealing in Family Business at Dalhousie and we would like to continue to develop our strength in this area to allow us to look at the particular characteristics of business in Atlantic Canada and enhance existing research.

Family Legacy Series [Dalhousie University]
