Administrative history

The Grand Manan Whale & Seabird Research Station is a non-profit private research facility located on the east coast of Canada on Grand Manan Island in the Bay of Fundy. Since 1981, researchers have conducted field studies from June through November, when most of the whales, porpoises, and seabirds are present in the Bay. The remainder of the year is used to process samples, analyze data, write reports, and prepare for the next field season. The managing director lives on the Island year-round. Dr. Gaskin, a professor at the University of Guelph and the executive director of the station from 1981 to 1998, died on 13 September 1998 and was replaced by Laurie Murison .
