Brian Hunt
Chief Scientist

Brian Hunt is an oceanographer who was born in South Africa, studied in Australia and settled in Canada. He researches the critical role of plankton in marine ecosystems, and how this role is shifting in a changing climate. Brian’s research has taken him to many of the world’s oceans, from the Antarctic to the Arctic, Mediterranean to the tropics, and is presently centred on British Columbia. Brian says it is a great honour for him to be involved in the Canada C3 expedition in Canada’s 150th anniversary year, celebrating the diversity of Canada’s environments and people.
