The government of Newfoundland and Labrador is allocating another $450,000 to cod stock research.
Fisheries Minister Clyde Jackman says projects for this year are now being developed and reviewed.
Jackman says giving scientists and biologists the resources they need helps contribute to their knowledge and understanding of fish stocks.
To date, the province says it has contributed almost $2 million to a cod recovery strategy.
The money is in addition to the $14 million announced for fisheries science and applied fisheries research in July 2010.
