The Huntsman is a non-profit charity dedicated to ocean stewardship. It provides one-of-a-kind experiences the whole family will enjoy.
There is no other institution in Canada like the Huntsman – a private not-for-profit social enterprise with an oceans focused mission that also conducts world-class aquatic contract research services. Our storied past is intertwined with giants in the fields of aquatic and fisheries research. And to locate the Huntsman within beautiful St. Andrews-by-the-Sea exemplifies sage wisdom indeed.The Huntsman idea began in 1967, with Dr. John Anderson leading the charge, and testing the concept through the Visiting Investigators Program at the St. Andrews Biological Station in 1968.
Success of this program provided further impetus to proceed with legal incorporation of the Huntsman Marine Laboratory in early 1969 as a completely separate, federally incorporated, non-profit, registered charitable organization. Our initial membership involved a consortium of 20 universities and several government departments that came together to become a “co-operative venture in learning.” In 1987, our name was formally changed to The Huntsman Marine Science Centre to better reflect our growth from simply being a field station to operating as an important regional centre, but our overall mission and vision did not change.
