Huntsman Marine Science Centre

The Huntsman Marine Science Centre welcomed over 700,000 members of the general public through the operation of its aquarium facility (1972-2010), informing visitors to the region about Canada's east coast marine ecology and the marine based economy.  The original Aquarium was demolished in 2010 to make room for the new Fundy Discovery Aquarium which opened on September 1, 2011.
