Research Facilities

Marine/Freshwater Aquatic Facilities

The Department provides both freshwater and marine holding facilities, although the latter are now mostly used for housing teaching material. The freshwater system is used extensively for studies on respiratory metabolism of trout and salmon, and on diving-physiology of birds and other vertebrates. Long-term marine research is done through collaborative association with the Fisheries and Oceans Canada research facility (West Vancouver Laboratory) or at the Bamfield Marine Station.
