NFLD pumping $90K into fish tagging, science

Newfoundland and Labrador is the only province that independently funding fisheries science. Yeah, it would make no sense for Saskatchewan to do so, but it is still impressive. And kind of sad that the feds leave such empty holes in the research.

Glenn Blackwood, the vice president of Memorial University (Marine Institute) said the tagging projects are “ground breaking” and that they are “unravelling the distribution and migration mysteries” around groundfish.

He added that better science on those species will result in more informed fish management decisions for those stocks in the future.
