Symposium on the Biology and Ecology of Northwest Atlantic Cod

A symposium will be held October 24-28, 1994 in St. John's, Newfoundland, CANADA, to review recent research on Atlantic cod undertaken by the Northern Cod Science Program (NCSP), the Ocean Production Enhancement Network (OPEN), and Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN). Researchers not affiliated with these programs are also encouraged to participate. The goals of the symposium will be to summarize current knowledge on cod biology and ecology with particular emphasis on the Northwest Atlantic, to discuss application of recent research results to current fisheries problems, and to provide recommendations for research directions. The symposium will include formal oral presentations, posters, and workshop discussions on relevant topics.

Persons conducting cod-related research are invited to submit titles for paper or poster presentations no later than December 1, 1993. Presentations are encouraged on biological (e.g., phenology, physiology, genetics, growth, survival), ecological (e.g., distribution, abundance, behavior, predator/prey interactions) and physical (e.g., transport, models) processes and on new research methods and technologies. Titles, authorship, affiliation, and paper/poster preference should be sent to:
