Welcome to the Department of Ocean Sciences. The Department is located at the Ocean Sciences Centre (OSC) in Logy Bay, which is approximately 15km from the main campus.
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.
Memorial University’s Faculty of Science, Queen Elizabeth II (QEII) Library and the Botanical Garden have joined forces with the Johnson GEO Centre and St. John’s Regional Library to host a series of science themed events during the week of Sept. 21st.
The Research & Development Corporation (RDC) announced a research and development (R&D) investment of $258,000 to support the growth of the salmon aquaculture industry in Newfoundland and Labrador. Along with government and industry partners, the total project value is $991,000.
