Report of the 2016 Workshop to Inform the DFO Five-Year Research Plan for Atlantic Walruses in Canada: Fs97-6/3200E-PDF

"In April 2016, the Science Branches of Fisheries and Oceans, Central and Arctic Region and Quebec Region, hosted a two-day workshop to gather advice for the development of a 5-year research plan on Atlantic walrus (Odobenus rosmarus rosmarus) in Canada. The workshop brought together researchers and co-managers from across Canada, and from Greenland and Alaska. It began with short presentations on recent and ongoing walrus research in these jurisdictions. Smaller groups were then formed to discuss research needs in Canada related to walrus: Abundance, Population Biology, Management Science, Threats /Stressors, Distribution and Movements, and Ecosystems and Habitat. This report summarizes those discussions and proposes priority issues for future research"--Abstract, p. v.
