LIFE IN DEPARTURE BAY HISTORY

The Pacific Biological Station at Deparure Bay was established in 1908 by Rev.George Taylor & is the oldest fisheries research center on the Pacific coast of Canada. PBS has been crucial to the study of fish population & salmon stock distribution since inception. Beginning with a single wooden building, the Station has grown into a complex of more than 22 structures, including laboratories, offices, and a wharf for research vessels. Approximately 300 employees in Science & the Fisheries Protection Program of Fisheries and Oceans Canada are employed at PBS. The oldest building on the site was built in 1929 as residence for visiting scientists. The station was designated as a site of national historic significance in 2013. Credit, John Homes @ PBS
