Research Facility

Cold-ocean Deep-sea Research Facility
Memorial University
St. John's
Newfoundland and Labrador (NL)

The Cold-Ocean Deep-Sea Research Facility (CDRF) at the Ocean Sciences Centre provides researchers with access to state of the art infrastructure and equipment for the study of aquatic organisms, especially those from the cold waters of the Arctic and North Atlantic oceans.

The CDRF offers researchers unique facilities, including a local seawater line for a continuous flow-through water supply to a AQC3 certified biocontainment facility. The facility is newly equipped with histology, microscopy, deep-sea and disease challenge equipment.
