Dr. Jin Gao, a research scientist at the Centre for Fisheries Ecosystems Research, Marine Institute has secured and NSERC grant for her project, "Improving the Sustainability of Northwest Atlantic Fisheries via Predictive Modelling." Dr. Gao specializes in the development and application of modern statistical methods to enhance stock assessment.
Her project focuses on major commercial fish populations in the North Atlantic, with the goal of improving forecasts of population dynamics for better management decisions by ecological management organizations. Dr. Gao emphasizes the importance of accurate and adaptive predictive models in successful fisheries management. The project also includes plans to build a cutting-edge research framework for quantitative fisheries and hire four graduate students to support her research program.
In summary, this project aims to enhance the sustainability of Northwest Atlantic fisheries by leveraging predictive modeling and advanced statistical methods, ultimately contributing to the long-term viability of these valuable natural resources.
