The immense challenges associated with the changing climate, Global Net-Zero, damage to ocean eco-systems and biodiversity, and the need for safe and sustainable ocean food production are too large-scale and complex for one organization, one research sector, or one country to tackle alone.
Working with others allow the Institute to reap the many benefits of engaging with the wider community and, to date, our partners and collaborators have contributed in the following ways:
The Institute interacts with over 200 regional, national, and international organizations in 10 countries – academic, governmental, environmental, industry and commerce, philanthropic, and non-profit.
The 41 “Founding Partners” shown below, are those named in the original proposal to CFREF:
OFI is a partnership led by Dalhousie University, Memorial University of Newfoundland, and the University of Prince Edward Island.
Since its inception in 2016, the Institute’s Executive and researchers have engaged with a further 168 organizations across Canada and globally, in pursuit of our research, training, and advisory aims and objectives. Some have been involved already in projects and some are committed to participating in later years.
