Aquatic Ecosystems


The research carried out in the Aquatic theme focuses on protecting the health of freshwater ecosystems, as their continued productivity is critical to both recreational use of water, its direct consumption, and as a source of food. Both domestically and internationally, Canada defines itself through its relationship to fresh waters, perhaps more than any other country in the world. Thus, stewardship of this prized resource is central to Canada's global environmental role.
