The Aquaculture Collaborative Research and Development Program is issuing a Call for Proposals for research project funding for the 2015-2016 fiscal year.

The deadline for submissions of proposals is February 1st, 2015.

Proposals which support aquaculture research and development in the marine environment and which address the program objectives of Environmental Performance and Optimal Fish Health will be accepted. Please note that the Program is no longer funding research that is aimed at improving fish or shellfish production or freshwater aquaculture research. Priority will be given to projects that are aligned with the established research priorities for the ACRDP.

Further information about the application process and program objectives and research priorities is available here. 
Applications should be submitted electronically to using the provided template.
Please note that applications must now be approved by the appropriate DFO Regional Director of Science before being submitted nationally for consideration. A section has been added to the proposal template requiring this level of approval.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding types of projects which might be funded or the application process, please contact Roger Wysocki ( or by phone at 613-998-5171).
