Canadian Fisheries Research Network (CFRN)
The NSERC Canadian Fisheries Research Network (CFRN) is linking academic researchers, the fishing industry, and government researchers and managers to develop a national capture fisheries research capacity. The vision of the Network is to reshape fisheries research in Canada by establishing a tradition of enhanced collaboration across sectors that is required for a sustainable and viable fishing industry in an evolving management system.
I was involved in project 1.4: Effects of socio-ecological complexity on dynamics of harvested fish stocks. Check out our progress on the CFRN website!
The Aqua project - Mobile Robotics Lab - McGill University
The objective of the AQUA project is to produce a fully-autonomous amphibious robot which can explore underwater environments and gather data with minimum disturbance of aquatic life. Its advanced vision system in combination with six independently-controlled flippers for locomotion gives to robots their incredible manoeuvrability in the water allowing them to safely pass over coral in shallow waters as well as to explore a sandy bottom without physical contact.
I really enjoyed collaborating with those guys! More to come
