Canada opens state-of-the-art research facility
Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and Mike Wallace, Member of Parliament for Burlington, have officially opened the new Aquatic Life Research Facility at the Canada Centre for Inland Waters in Burlington, Ontario.
The new facility is a $4.6 million state-of-the-art laboratory designed for studying the health of fish and other aquatic life in the contexts of exposure to potential environmental stressors. Built as a joint project between Environment Canada and Fisheries and Oceans Canada, it provides space for scientists, graduate students, and university partners.
The new Aquatic Life Research Facility will allow scientists to study various aquatic health issues more effectively including:
- Effects of contaminants, such as chemical and biological stressors, on aquatic life Impacts of changes to the food chain, water quality and temperature
- Effects of aquatic invasive species on other aquatic life
- Study of native species and their life cycle, including species at risk
The lab will employ the latest water recirculation technology to ensure the efficient use of water and energy.
