A court ordered monetary penalty for environmental damages allocated $1,100,000 for creation of the Alberta East Slopes Fish Habitat and Native Fish Recovery Research Fund. These funds are held in trust by the University of Alberta (UofA) to be used to support research projects addressing the target areas. An Advisory Committee has been established with representation from two faculties within UofA, the government of Alberta, the Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans, and a non-governmental organization, to facilitate this Call for Proposals, approve proposals, allocate funding, and review project reports.
On behalf of the Advisory Committee for the Alberta East Slopes Fish Habitat and Native Fish Recovery Research Fund, please find attached the related Call for Proposals and Application Form.
The due date for proposals is January 12, 2018 to the Alberta Fish Research Fund ABFishRF@ualberta.ca (send as one combined pdf).
