Oceans 11

First and Second Semester 

Oceans 11 is the study of the waters of the ocean, structure of the ocean floor, and life in the ocean. The course offers students the opportunity to explore many aspects of global oceanography with emphasis placed on the local level (the Maritimes) and Canada’s role in ocean studies. Units of study include: Structure and Motion, Marine Biome, Coastal Zone, Aquaculture, and Fisheries. Topics range from the structure of the earth, currents, waves, tides, marine biology, fisheries, pollution and other ocean-related studies.

Oceans 11 is intended to enable students to develop a sound scientific oceans background, an awareness of future opportunities in the oceans field, an understanding of the importance of a healthy oceans environment, and recognition of the important role of every Canadian in oceans management.
