November 6, 2020
Parks Canada has established its first research chair in aquatic restoration at the University of New Brunswick. UNB Biological Sciences research associate Kurt Samways has been chosen for the chair, which is funded by a contribution of $500K from the Atlantic salmon recovery project. “We’re proud to host Parks Canada’s first Research Chair, strengthening our capacity to deliver ground-breaking marine, coastal and freshwater science research and learning opportunities across our institution and particularly on our Saint John campus,” said UNB President Paul J Mazerolle. “Our students, our communities, our national parks and our future will be the beneficiaries of this partnership.” UNB | Cision (NB)
