Celebrate Fisheries and Oceans’ Scientists and Researchers Across Canada
World Fisheries Day is November 21st, it’s an opportunity to reflect on the ever-increasing knowledge about fishing, fishers, coastal communities, and the status of the oceans and the fish stocks, as well as to recognize the contribution of fishing people who provide food, nutrition and income security to millions of people around the world. We’re celebrating by recognizing researchers and scientists across Canada with Fisheries and Oceans Canada, who are working to protect and sustainably manage our vital fresh and saltwater ecosystems.
Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is a federal institution, responsible for safeguarding our waters and managing Canada’s fisheries and oceans resources. DFO helps to ensure healthy and sustainable aquatic ecosystems through habitat protection and sound science. We support economic growth in the marine and fisheries sectors, and innovation in areas such as aquaculture and biotechnology.
