Equipment Archive

The BIO Oceans Association, in collaboration with The Regional Director, Science (DFO), the Regional Director Oceans (DFO), and the Director, GSC(A) (NRCan), are attempting to preserve some of the history of BIO. As part of this endeavor, the Association is collecting artifacts such as equipment developed at BIO or under contract to BIO and also some of the "tools-of-the-trade" used by BIO staff ashore and in the field. Attached is an inventory that catalogs the items that have been collected to date. Accompanying this list are photos and short descriptive notes of most of the entries. I would appreciate receiving corrections or additions to these notes and contributions describing items that are not yet covered. Please send them to my attention at
