why aquatic science? exciting, stimulating, directly relevant to our quality of life and processes which shape our environment, timely since the state of our environment is of major public concern and political interest. you chose your career, or anything else that you feel would interest Canadian students studying the aquatic sciences. The opportunity of working with researchers from various disciplines on local and global problems, the pleasure of the outdoors, and the joy of elucidating the mechanisms of natural processes.
