One of Canada’s largest aquatic research labs

As a world-class facility, the Aquatron has an incredible range of research facilities, allowing it to accommodate almost any lab-based aquatic experiment. The indoor, large tank facilities, wet labs, temperature controlled water and experienced staff ensure that the Aquatron is unmatched anywhere in the world.

Meeting the needs of researchers

With a full-time, experienced staff of biologists and mechanical operators, we can help researchers take full advantage of all that the Aquatron facilities have to offer. Researchers from the university, government and industry have a history of successfully completing high quality projects on time and on budget – thanks, in part, to the experience and dedication of the Aquatron staff and the amazing facilities at their disposal.

Conveniently located on Dal’s main campus

It is rare for a facility of this magnitude to be centrally located, so researchers and students appreciate that they can be on the main campus and work at the Aquatron at the same time. Being close to other researchers allows for great collaboration and cross-pollination of ideas. And the Killam Library is just steps away, as are many other university services.
