MUN Marine Institute to introduce three new graduate programs in fisheries science

March 9, 2017

The Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University has introduced three new graduate degrees in fisheries science. Pending approval by MUN’s Board of Regents, the School of Fisheries will deliver a master of science in fisheries science (fisheries science and technology), a master of science in fisheries science (stock assessment), and a doctor of philosophy in fisheries science beginning in Fall 2017. “Our aim is to produce world-leading graduates who can help us understand how we can be as efficient and selective as possible in harvesting and conservation and do it in a more sustainable manner,” said Glenn Blackwood, vice-president, Memorial University (Marine Institute). A MUN release reports that the PhD program marks the first time the Marine Institute has offered a doctoral degree in its 53-year history. MUN
