The closure of the cod fisheries on the eastern Scotian shelf (and the effective closure of the remaining fisheries because of cod bycatch restrictions) provided an incentive for each of these groups to open a meaningful and effective dialogue to EXAMPLES OF COOPERATIVE RESEARCH IN OTHER COUNTRIES 37 share information essential to the long-term sustainability of these fisheries. This dialogue resulted in the development and implementation of the Eastern Scotian Shelf Sentinel Survey for cod and other surveys like the halibut survey outlined above and the establishment of the Fishermen and Scientists Research Society (FSRS).

Feedback to these presentations is extensive and includes detailed accounts of anomalous observations and ancillary information not formally included in the data collection protocols. Conclusions Although the full value of the halibut survey is just now being realized, it has already been immensely successful in increasing the knowledge base for this species and in fostering an effective working relationship between halibut fishermen and fisheries scientists. Keys to the success of this initiative to this point are: • The high landed value of the target species and the use of catch revenues to cover the costs of the survey.

Perpetuate livelihoods as fishermen. The formal objectives of the society were debated and finalized at the first annual general meeting (1994) and are: • To establish and maintain a network of fishing industry personnel to collect information, for use by members of the FSRS, relevant to the long-term sustainability of the marine fishing industry in the Atlantic region. • To facilitate and promote effective communication among fishermen, scientists, and the general public. • To participate, as appropriate, in research projects of other agencies and institutions that require the collection of information relevant to fisheries and marine environmental monitoring.
