There are major areas of uncertainty concerning the exploitation and management of the sea cucumber (C. frondosa) industry in Atlantic Canada. This research project will address these gaps and give stakeholders a better understanding of C. frondosa, in order to make the best possible decisions relative to its management and conservation. The proposed research will also seek to identify concrete ways of optimizing sea cucumber harvesting and production, by increasing the quality, consistency, and competitiveness of the products, and exploring novel commercial avenues.
