Education and training is one of the department’s principal mandates, and is achieved by providing a stimulating, research-intensive environment in which students can develop and thrive. The uniqueness of the department’s resources provides an opportunity for interdisciplinary training in cold ocean research, whether it is related to physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology; biological and chemical oceanography; behavioral and population ecology; or aquaculture and fisheries.
