Cherisse du Preez, Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada
Come out to hear Marine Biologist, Cherisse Du Preez share with us some of the exciting research that the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is currently working on. Cherisse studies deep seafloor habitats in potential Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in the Pacific Ocean. To meet national and international conservation goals, Canada is creating its largest Marine Protected Area or MPA to date, ~140,000 km2 of the Pacific offshore. The region’s seismic and geologic activity has created a diverse and complex seafloor. These natural networks of ecosystems support enhanced marine biodiversity, as well as ecologically, commercially, and culturally significant species. In July 2017, DFO embarked on a pilot expedition to collect valuable footage of the never before seen seamounts. Join us to get the latest updates!
