Community - University Research for Recovery Alliance
Lessons for the Future
The Community-University Research for Recovery Alliance (CURRA) was a 7-year research program of innovative, interdisciplinary research projects related to helping communities and organizations along Newfoundland's west coast develop strategies for the recovery of fish stocks and fishery communities.
The CURRA Legacy: Lessons for the Future is a collection of interactive lesson plans based on research completed by the Community-University Research for Recovery Alliance (CURRA). These lessons are intended to inspire interest and stewardship amongst intermediate and senior students with regards to the fisheries of western Newfoundland.
Books to Boats
The Humber Arm Atlantic Canada Action Program (ACAP) "Trading Books for Boats" has introduced an interactive marine science education program for high school students on marine ecology into the high school curriculum. This program is currently offered from the Bonne Bay Marine Station and is jointly funded by the regional school board and DFO. We will use this initiative as a model for a Trading Books for Boats program to be delivered at Bonne Bay designed for students in Grades 11 and 12 with a focus on fisheries and fish behaviour.
