Ocean Frontier Institute

Safe and sustainable development of the ocean frontier

Ocean Frontier Institute

The Ocean Frontier Institute (OFI) is a collaborative research initiative to harness the vast potential of the world’s ocean.

An international hub for ocean science, OFI brings together researchers and institutes from both sides of the North Atlantic to understand our changing ocean and create safe, sustainable solutions for development.

OFI represents a historic partnership between Memorial, Dalhousie University and the University of Prince Edward Island.

The OFI is made possible through funding from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund and various private and public-sector organizations.

Through Memorial's involvement, OFI research will improve prediction and mitigation of major storms, help better manage the ocean's living resources, improve aquaculture's potential to meet global seafood demand, strengthen marine transportation policy and risk reduction and transform how we monitor the ocean with new data capture and IT tools.
