A world-class research and teaching facility, the Bonne Bay
Marine Station on Newfoundland's breath-taking west coast is dedicated
to expanding knowledge of marine ecology.
Nestled in a quaint coastal community, this world-class facility offers a host of services to students, researchers, educators and the general public.
The station is surrounded by Gros Morne National Park, the Bonne Bay area exhibits unparalleled diversity of habitat, marine plants, fish and invertebrates. This diversity cannot be matched anywhere else in north-eastern North America.
Equipped with teaching and research laboratories, library/resource centre, multimedia theatre, aquarium, residence accommodations, and small boats, the station offers students a premiere learning environment and researchers a first-rate facility for marine ecosystem research. An innovative Ocean Observatory linked to the Internet provides researchers near and far the ability to observe and analyze the ocean ecosystem in action. Visitors, school and community groups can learn about our latest research while observing marine flora and fauna in the station's aquaria and touch tank.
Officially opened on 6 Sept, 2002, the Bonne Bay Marine Station is operated by Memorial University of Newfoundland and the Gros Morne Co-operating Association.
