The SON Fisheries Assessment Program Together with Giigoonyag initiative is seeking analytical, detailed, self-motivated individuals to conduct a paid review of fisheries-related literature. This project will provide an overview of the existing knowledge about fish stocking in Lake Huron and the SON’s traditional territory by reviewing academic literature from peer-reviewed sources, books, grey literature, and documents produced by the Saugeen Ojibway Nation and Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. The review will identify key gaps and uncertainties in the literature that have yet to be addressed by the scientific or research community and help to inform the creation of the SON’s Goals and Objectives for the Fishery.
The literature review has been divided into four chapters: Ecosystem (APPENDIX I); Food Security and Health (APPENDIX II); Culture, Spirituality, and Social (APPENDIX III); and Economics (APPENDIX IV). We anticipate a different reviewer for each chapter, although an applicant may submit a proposal for multiple chapters. These contract opportunities will be compensated according to the chapter being reviewed.
Please read the project Call for Applications for much more information and application instructions.
