Science communicator: White paper for the Office of the Chief Science Advisor of Canada
A- A A+
The Office of the Chief Science Advisor of Canada sought a white paper for a panel it had convened to advise on how the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) could improve its communication of aquaculture science findings and resulting policy decisions to Canadians in the face of mistrust and misinformation.
Provide practical recommendations for “quick win” improvements that could be achieved relatively quickly and cost-effectively.

The white paper and its six “quick win” recommendations added to the information the Expert Panel used to inform its own recommendations to the Government of Canada addressing the growing mistrust between DFO and its stakeholders, and the seemingly conflicting information on the effect of aquaculture on the marine environment.
