Welcome to the Ocean Management Research Network

The aim of the Ocean Management Research Network is to create and share knowledge for the application of critical thinking and best practices to oceans management in Canada. The OMRN is interdisciplinary, with an initial focus on social science, providing a forum for researchers, managers, and policymakers to evaluate timely and innovative linkages, integrate lessons learned, transfer and share knowledge, and help create an expert core of ocean researchers. The OMRN facilitates value-added research, provides seed funding, and seeks to establish a long-term research agenda.
