The program of the Nova Scotia Museum requires that a comprehensive reference collection of local marine animals be developed.

Examination of the habitat of juvenile haddock on the eastern Scotian Shelf in relation to grab-sampled benthic macrofaunal invertebrate species assemblages identified statistically significant differences in biomass, density and composition of the benthos associated with juvenileHaddock abundance; however it was difficult to determine whether the results had biological relevance.
