The Canadian Healthy Oceans Network (CHONe) involves sixty-five researchers from fifteen universities and a number of federal research labs across Canada. It is concerned with research in Canadas three oceans and focuses on three themes: marine biodiversity, ecosystem function and population connectivity. The network is interdisciplinary in nature and will create a marine biodiversity database, train new marine scientists and raise public awareness of the importance of Canadas oceans. Research will also focus on improved management of living marine resources including key commercial species such as lobster and cod, and on developing tools to enhance sustainable development of the oceans by marine industries including oil and gas and fishing.
