The Atlantic Reference Centre (ARC) is a research museum for aquatic organisms from Atlantic Canada. Specimens are available for research and education purposes through both loan or visit. Our location near the Bay of Fundy means that we have excellent access to a wide variety of marine species, and our facilities have made the process of storing these samples much easier, further improving the quality of our extensive collection. The quality of our collection can also be attributed to our Collections Manager, Lou van Guelpen, who brings skill and passion to his job at Huntsman.
The collection was established in 1910 and ceased acquisitions in present.
Kingdoms covered include: Animalia and Plantae.
