The St. Lawrence Estuary and the Gulf of St. Lawrence form a veritable inland sea extending from Tadoussac (at the mouth of the Saguenay) to the Atlantic Ocean.

The fish-filled waters of this St. Lawrence Marine ecosystem abound with plankton, making them ideally suited to fish and whales and other marine mammals.

The Biodôme’s ecosystem, containing 2.5 million litres of "seawater" made at the Biodôme, is the perfect place to admire some of the shapes and colours hidden in these cold, salty waters.

Come with us and explore the cold, salty waters of the St. Lawrence Marine ecosystem, where you can see and identify fish of many different shapes.

Here's six of numerous species living in the Biodôme's St. Lawrence Marine ecosystem.
