CANADIAN HEALTHY OCEANS NETWORK - OUR SCIENCE


The Canadian Healthy Oceans Network is a university-government partnership dedicated to biodiversity science for the sustainability of Canada's three oceans. Our Science is a weekly podcast about the people and science that is being conducted in Canada’s three oceans by Canadian Healthy Oceans Network researchers. Our stories range from estuaries and coastal to open-ocean and deep-sea ecosystems (e.g. kelp beds, intertidal, subtidal, seafloor, water column, open-ocean, hydrothermal vents, deep-sea coral and sponge reefs, etc.) to the organisms (invertebrates, vertebrates, kelps, eelgrass, larvae, bacteria, phytoplankton, zooplankton, etc.) in Canada’s three oceans. Our science focuses on three areas of research:


(1) Marine Biodiversity: How many and what type of plants and animals live in our oceans? Where do we find them?

(2) Population Connectivity: How are groups of animals connected?

(3) Ecosystem Function: How do plants, animals and stressors influence how the marine environment works? How does a change in one group affect another?

The show is produced and edited by the Canadian Healthy Oceans Network.

2020 Vision of Canada's Oceans Dialogue 

Sustainable management of Canada’s oceans requires Canadians to manage our activities (e.g. fishing, aquaculture, resource extraction, shipping, recreation, etc.) in a way that minimizes harm to the environment and its ecosystems, and ensures ours and the planet’s well-being. This requires a national strategy, and the coordination and collaboration among stakeholders (e.g. scientists, government, industry, NGOs and the public) to seek the appropriate balance between conservation and use of the ocean. To find this balance, ecological, economic and social information, as well as options and constraints must be included in the decision-making process. It also requires us to accept social responsibility for our ocean use, and demonstrate leadership in the decision-making of environmental protection, rather than focusing on short-term profits. By preserving Canada’s heritage, we will ensure the long-term socio-economic benefit of our oceans resources.

The 2020 Vision of Canada’s Oceans Dialogue; a series of presentations and open exchanges among ~80 major stakeholders in Canada’s oceans to address how science can inform policy towards sustainable ocean use.
