Sea Life on view at new Deep Bay Marine Field Station

Vancouver Island’s new, multi-million dollar Deep Bay Marine Field Station, near Qualicum Beach, is a stunning clamshell-shaped structure that gazes over the waters of Baynes Sound. It is an architectural triumph, honoured with a 2011 National Green Buildings Award. At this facility, aquaculture research is treated the same way land-based agricultural field research has been done for years. The building also functions as a marine science museum with huge aquariums up to nine metres long, jellyfish tank, touch-tanks and the skeleton of a 10-metre grey whale. Here, children and adults can plunge into the world beneath the ocean and explore the marine life of the planet. (http://www.viu.ca/deepbay)
