Mark Abrahams Dean of Science Research focuses on predator-prey interactions, how they are affected by the physical environment, and their impact on habitat quality.
Don Deibel Professor (Research) Research focuses on the population dynamics and role in the marine carbon cycle of gelatinous zooplankton, using biochemical and video analysis tools, particularly in the Arctic and Newfoundland waters.
William R. Driedzic Professor - Canada Research Chair in Marine Bioscience Research focuses on the impact of environmental challenges, especially low oxygen and temperature extremes, on metabolic pathaways. 
Ian Fleming  Professor Research focuses on evolutionary and behavioral ecology, with an emphasis on fish breeding systems, life history diversity, phenotypic plasticity and survival strategies in the context of conservation and management.
Garth L. Fletcher Head Research focuses on antifreeze proteins, their physiological regulation and mechanisms of action, and their diversity, evolution and potential economic value in the field of biotechnology.
Patrick Gagnon Associate Professor Research investigates factors and processes governing the structure and function of shallow, marine benthic ecosystems in subarctic and cold temperate regions, while contributing novel approaches to the study of these ecosystems at meaningful scales.
A. Kurt Gamperl Professor Research examines how environmental factors (e.g. hypoxia, temperature, domestication, pollutants, etc.) affect fish physiology, and whether the impacted fishes have the capacity to compensate for/adapt to these changes.
Iain J. McGaw Associate Professor Research investigates the digestive physiology and movement of crustaceans and how animals balance the demands of several systems during environmental perturbations.
Annie Mercier Associate Professor Research focuses on species interactions and the influence of environmental factors on reproductive and feeding processes at various scales in benthic marine organisms. Major research areas include chronobiology, phenology, larval ecology, deep-sea biology, ocean acidification and aquaculture.
Chris C. Parrish Professor (Research) Research focuses on the production, transport, fate and effects of lipids and other organic compounds in food webs.
Matthew L. Rise Associate Professor - Canada Research Chair in Marine Biotechnology  Research uses functional genomic tools and techniques to study the genes and molecular pathaways involved in aquatic animal growth, development, and responses to pathogens and environmental stressors (e.g. pollutants, temperature stress).
Richard B. Rivkin Univeristy Research Professor Research focuses on various aspects of biological oceanography, phytoplankton and microbial physiology and ecology and oceanic biogeochemistry in diverse oceanic regions.
David C. Schneider Professor Research addresses the problem of spatial scale in the environmental sciences, with an emphasis on spatial scaling as it has developed in oceanography, ecology, and aquaculture and fisheries. 
Paul Snelgrove Professor - Canada Research Chair Boreal and Cold Ocean Systems Research focuses on the links between fish and invertebrate larval behaviour and transport, and how they contribute to recruitment success, population connectivity, and spatial patterns in coastal environments.
Joseph S. Wroblewski Professor Research is investigating the potential effects of climate change on the oceanography of coastal Labrador and on the ecology and management of nearshore fisheries.
Emeritus & Honourary Faculty 
Raymond J. Thompson Professor (Research) Research focuses on physiological ecology of benthic marine invertebrates, focusing on adaptations to a variable food supply, especially the utilisation of sinking organic material from the spring phytoplankton bloom.
