  • Centre for Offshore Oil, Gas and Energy Research - "COOGER is the Centre for Offshore Oil, Gas and Energy Research, and we’re a Centre of Expertise within Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and what we are, we’re a virtual centre that pulls together scientists from across the country to tackle environmental issues related to the energy sector in the ocean."
  • COOGER Arctic - The video provides the rationale for conducting controlled oil spill experiments in the Arctic by the Centre for Offshore Oil, Gas and Energy Research (COOGER) with international collaborators, to assess the environmental risk of oil spills, and to develop and validate improved remediation technologies.
  • Aquaculture Science - The three great oceans that surround Canada form one of this country’s greatest assets.  Ensuring the sustainability of their aquatic resources is the challenge that scientists at Fisheries and Oceans Canada take on every day. 
  • Oasis of the Deep - Oasis of the Deep: Cold Water Corals of Canada is an educational look at stunning corals of Atlantic Canada captured on video. The fascinating footage is accompanied by an in-depth explanation of the significance and range of the corals off the coast of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador.
  • Revealing a Hidden Realm - Revealing a Hidden Realm: Canada's First Biodiversity Corridor tells the story of collaborative scientific work to explore the Discovery Corridor in the Gulf of Maine, its biodiversity and previously unknown species and processes.
  • Institute of Ocean Sciences - The Institute of Ocean Sciences, or IOS, located in Sidney, British Columbia, is an important link in Fisheries and Oceans Canada's nationwide chain of major scientific facilities.

Climate Change Adaptation

Three short videos help explain some of the processes that regulate our climate, and how climate change is also bringing change to the oceans. Ocean scientists at Fisheries and Oceans Canada produced the videos to explain the potential impacts of aquatic climate change across Canada and to help viewers understand two complex ocean processes related to climate change: acidification and hypoxia. 

Ocean Scientists

This series of documentaries depicts the lives and scientific contributions of pioneering scientists in marine biology and oceanography in Canada. The series was originally produced between 1994 and 2004 by the First Fisheries Science Documentary Society under the guidance of Department of Fisheries and Oceans scientist Dr. Richard Beamish.
