- First session of Thursday PM: CHONe tools and ideas. A quick sweep through some of the projects in each of CHONe's three major research themes: Marine Biodiversity, Ecosystem Function, and Ocean Connectivity.

- Pierre Pepin, co-leader of the Ocean Connectivity theme and DFO Research Scientist, was frank about DFO needs.
- — Amanda Vincent (@AmandaVincent1)Thu, Dec 05 2013 22:46:16Pierre Pepin (DFO): "Our expertise requirements far exceed what is available in the Dept". Need long-term academic engagement. #Oceans2020
- — Maeva Gauthier (@maevagauthier)Thu, Dec 05 2013 22:56:54Dept of fisheries & oceans: need for more collaborations. Expertise requirements exceeds capacity. #oceans2020
- One solution, proposed by John Roff:

- Dialogue leader Amanda Vincent posed pointed questions about the impact of CHONe outputs, which led to an interesting discussion about the timeframe of implementation of scientific results.
- — Amanda Vincent (@AmandaVincent1)Thu, Dec 05 2013 23:00:05CHONe produces vast research on many topics but "application of [some ? much ?] information remains a challenge for DFO”. #Oceans2020

- — CanHealthyOcean (@CanHealthyOcean)Thu, Dec 05 2013 23:09:193/4 It takes even longer to scale up the science from regional to national scales for policy or management or for it to be used #Oceans2020
- — CanHealthyOcean (@CanHealthyOcean)Thu, Dec 05 2013 23:10:544/4 Also policy and management take a long time to implement. What are tangible steps to make these process more efficient? #Oceans2020
- Next up: Martha Crago, VP Research at Dalhousie University and head of the Canadian Consortium of Ocean Research Universities (CCORU), revealed the main findings of a recently released report on Ocean Science in Canada, by the Canadian Council of Academies.
2020 Vision of Canada's Oceans Dialogue - Day 1 PM
The 2020 Vision Dialogue brings together major stakeholders in Canada's oceans to discuss how science can inform policy to maintain productive oceans that provide maximum benefits to Canadians.
