Department of Ocean Sciences
The Ocean Sciences Centre is Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador's cold ocean research facility. Located in Logy Bay, NL, the Centre houses laboratories where research is conducted on the North Atlantic fishery, aquaculture, oceanography, ecology, behaviour and physiology. Research is conducted on organisms ranging from bacteria to seals.
Ashley Nickson completed four courses at the Bonne Bay Aquarium and Research Station this summer — the first time they were offered since 2019.
Ms. Nickson says the two-week long field courses in Norris Point, N.L., on Newfoundland’s West Coast, gave her the opportunity to be in the field almost every day.
The Faculty of Science held its annual Dean’s Awards Ceremony recently, recognizing the top 10 per cent of its students.
In addition, the awards honour the service, scholarship and teaching of faculty and staff.
