DFO - Ecosystems and Oceans Science Contribution Framework

Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) provides funding to build expertise in ocean and freshwater science and technology in areas that support the mission of the Department to increase our understanding of ocean and freshwater environments. Through this, the Department seeks to better protect, sustain, and restore fisheries resources as well as the aquatic ecosystems that support them.

DFO is seeking projects that deliver scientific research and related activities that support evidence-based decision making and public understanding about the health of marine and freshwater ecosystems. Projects involving science data collection and integration, ocean and freshwater monitoring, analyses, modelling and hypothesis testing, scientific capacity building (Indigenous recipients only), and the communication of science in support of ocean literacy are eligible.
