Canadian marine biodiversity scientists forging strategy for sustainable ocean use
Date:1/4/2011

y programs. The NSERC Canadian Healthy Oceans Network (CHONe) is a research network of Canadian university researchers and government scientists formed to develop research tools that will aid decision-making for sustainable ocean usage. CHONe is compiling a marine biodiversity database for Canada's three oceans that will serve as a baseline and also developing scientific guidelines for conservation-based decisions in ocean management and policy. The Ocean Tracking Network (OTN) is a global network that tracks thousands of tagged marine animalsfrom fish to birds to polar bears using acoustic telemetry technology on the ocean floor to provide data about their movements, while building a record of climate change.

In addition, Snelgrove highlighted other important and uniquely Canadian initiatives and infrastructure that can support Canadian marine biodiversity research, including:

NEPTUNE (NorthEast Pacific Time-Series Underwater Networked Experiments) the world's largest cabled seafloor observatory located on the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, which gathers live data from depths ranging from 17 to 2,660 metres and makes them available via the Internet, allowing scientists to study episodic events and long-term changes. The CBC recently cited NEPTUNE as the fourth top science story in Canada for 2010.

VENUS (Victoria Experimental Network Under the Sea) a cabled undersea laboratory for ocean researchers and explorers that delivers real time information from seafloor instruments via fibre optic cables to the University of Victoria, BC.

ROPOS (Remotely Operated Platform for Ocean Sciences) a remotely operated underwater vehicle capable of operating to depths of 5,000 metres, provides scientists a window into the deep without having to journey there.

"Canada has the world's longest coast from the Atlantic, to the Arctic to the Pacific ocean," adds Philippe Archambault, Research Professor at the Univer
