The Huntsman Marine Science Centre is a private not-for-profit charity, registered in Canada since 1969, with a mission to inspire ocean stewardship through educational experiences and advance collaborative marine research. Our vision is to design and deliver the highest quality marine research and education programs and to convey these to our communities in support of sustaining the marine environment and economy.
Education & Outreach – People are inextricably tied to the oceans. We are locally linked to the Bay of Fundy with its highest tides, remarkable natural productivity, high fishery landings, and scenic beauty. However, our global connectivity means that what we do here may affect those living near an ocean elsewhere. The Huntsman has been providing insightful, educational, hands-on and exciting marine science experiences to life-long learners since 1969. In that timespan, we have educated more than 51,000 students of all ages and nearly 930,000 visitors have been inspired by our Fundy Discovery Aquarium. Focused outreach programs are relatively new to the Huntsman but already our #DebrisFreeFundy initiative provides an exceptional foundation by removing more than 5,440 kg (12,000 pounds) of rope from the Bay of Fundy for recycling.
Aquatic Research – With more than 500 peer-reviewed published contributions to science, Huntsman Marine Science Centre has an ever-growing reputation to complete best-in-class aquatic focused research. Breeding and genetics provided our foundation in 1974 and since then we have diversified our expertise to include taxonomy, toxicology and animal health. Our facilities and personnel offers world class aquatic focused contract research services to a range of regional, national and international study sponsors covering the aquaculture, pharmaceutical, chemical and oil production economic sectors. We have a research staff complement of nearly 30 highly qualified personnel, primarily as research scientists and technical staff, who are offered equal opportunity and compensation regardless of gender and represent numerous nationalities with education from globally diverse post-secondary institutions.
