The Hakai Institute’s Quadra field station is situated at the northern end of the Strait of Georgia, a water mass that represents a key rearing habitat for juvenile fish, and a hub for industry, transport, recreation and habitation on the British Columbia coast. The Quadra Field station is ideally located to access Sutil Channel and the Discovery Islands. Weekly monitoring across a subset of core stations provides high temporal resolution observations of ocean physics, chemistry, and planktonic food web structure and function. An expanded grid of stations is sampled on a monthly basis provide the enhanced spatial coverage needed to tease apart regional dynamics.
