Yvan Simard’s CV

This research chair grew out of a 2001 partnership agreement between the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DF0), the Maurice Lamontagne Institute (MLI), the Université du Québec à Rimouski (UQAR), and the Institut des sciences de la mer de Rimouskii (ISMER). It seeks to further research in this advanced sector, increases cooperation between DFO and universities, provides university training for qualified staff in this multidisciplinary and specialized field, and increase possibilities for cooperation and partnership. The research program calls on passive acoustic methods, such as the detection, identification and tracking of whales using their specific sounds, as well as active acoustic methods, including estimating and charting fish and krill in 3D in their environment. It also includes a technological development component.
