The Council of Canadian Academies released a workshop report on July 17, 2012, entitled:  40 Priority Research Questions for Ocean Science in Canada.  The report presents 40 key research questions that if answered, would have the greatest impact on addressing future opportunities and challenges relating to ocean science in Canada. The report was developed by a core group of 22 ocean science experts, and is the outcome of Phase 1 of a two-part initiative on ocean science.   

The full workshop report (for download, free of charge, in both official languages) and more information on Phase 2, are available on the Council's website (
