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.

Ocean Sciences Centre aquarist an ambassador of the Atlantic

Tyler is stalling. His training session is over, but he’s hanging on. His shiny, mottled head pokes above water, and his dark eyes size up the teaching assistant who has been trying to lure him from the tank. Then he turns and dives, curling away with a flick of his tail. As a harp seal who has lived at Memorial’s Ocean Sciences Centre (OSC) in Logy Bay since he was a white coat, Tyler knows that every training exercise includes tasty morsels of herring. “If he thinks there’s a chance that the training will continue, and a chance for more fish, he won’t leave the tank,” explained Daryl Jones, the OSC’s aquarist and supervisor of the seal facility.
