expedition (noun): a journey by a group of people for a specific purpose, such as to explore a remote place or to conduct scientific research.

Out of respect for heroic explorers such as Roald Amundsen and Ernest Shackleton, we do not use the word expedition lightly. If at first our quest for the Greenland shark required genuine expeditions that posed extreme environmental and logistical challenges, our current research in the St. Lawrence is by no means expeditionary. Baie-Comeau is a modern city where we operate out one of the best marinas in eastern Canada. Although the water is cold and sharks are at times difficult to locate, we are always safe, comfortable, and everything we need is readily accessible.
