Bonne Bay Marine Station

A world-class research and teaching facility, the Bonne Bay Marine Station on Newfoundland's breath-taking west coast is dedicated to expanding knowledge of marine ecology.

The Bonne Bay Aquarium & Research Station is a research, teaching and conference venue located in Norris Point, Newfoundland and Labrador, and is part of the Grenfell Campus, Memorial University. We are open to collaboration with researchers and professors from all disciplines interested in teaching and learning in the Gros Morne/Bonne Bay region.

Our Public Aquarium is open seasonally and showcases our local marine flora and fauna. When you visit, you will be able to join a tour led by one of our student interpreters who will guide you through the biology and ecology of Bonne Bay.

The Bonne Bay Aquarium & Research Station and Public Aquarium is located within Gros Morne National Park, in Norris Point, on the west coast of the island of Newfoundland.
