Bamfield, a picturesque fishing village on the west coast of Vancouver 
Island, forms the setting for the Marine Station. Nearby, Barkley Sound's 
abundant marine life and rich diversity of habitats afford many unique 
opportunities for teaching and research in the marine and coastal 
sciences. The Station is jointly operated by the University of Alberta, 
the University of British Columbia, the University of Calgary, Simon 
Fraser University and the University of Victoria.

undergraduate standing.
