"A Virtual Field Trip: Fisheries Science and Long-term Monitoring in the Southern Gulf of St. Lawrence and Maritimes Region of Atlantic Canada"

Presenter: Andrew Darcy

As the weather warms up and we think forward to enjoying outdoor activities, fisheries scientists at the Department of Fisheries and Oceans gear up for another busy field season.

Andrew Darcy is currently a technician with the Marine Fish and Mammal group which operates out of the Gulf Fisheries Center in Moncton, New Brunswick, and functions under the Ecosystem Science division of Fisheries & Oceans Canada.

His presentation will include an overview of the department's current research objectives with a focus on lab and field activities. A virtual field trip will take us through the day-to-day activities of being aboard a research vessel conducting trawl surveys in the Gulf region. We will learn about fishing methods and sampling techniques used on these surveys, as well as an introduction to the diversity and identification of a variety of vertebrate and invertebrate marine species that are commonly encountered on a daily basis while at sea. Please join us for what is sure to be a "fintastic" evening and explore a world that is seldomly seen by most.

Please note that this will be an in-person meeting. Masks are recommended. The meeting will also be live-streamed and people can join at the following link:
