GEERG researchers rely on the support of several corporations and institutions to conduct their work. Their generous contributions extend the range and scope of our operations, and they allow us to spend more productive time in the field.

The Aquarium du Québec has been a financial and logistical supporter of GEERG since 2003. The Aquarium du Québec has helped GEERG acquire costly equipment and telemetry tags. Aquarium staff have also played key roles on our many expeditions in the St. Lawrence Estuary.
