HALIFAX - Several East Coast fish stocks that collapsed in the early 1990s are showing the first signs of recovery, according to new research that suggests whole ecosystems can rebound.

Scientists at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography, a federal government research centre in Halifax, released a study Wednesday that says cod, haddock and other once dominant groundfish stocks are making a comeback on the eastern Scotian Shelf.
