HALIFAX _ The federal government is investing $93.7 million over seven years in an ocean research project involving three universities in Atlantic Canada.

Treasury Board President Scott Brison will make the announcement in Halifax today, saying Dalhousie University will be the headquarters for the Ocean Frontier Institute.

A source says Dalhousie will partner with Memorial University in Newfoundland and Labrador and the University of P.E.I., along with eight international institutes.

The funding is being made through the Canada First Research Excellence Fund, as well as $125 million from provincial governments and partners.

That includes a donation of $25 million from Nova Scotia businessman John Risley, making the $219-million investment one of the largest in the ocean science sector.

The institute will focus on researching ocean and ecosystem change, such as acidification, and developing innovations related to sustainable fisheries and aquaculture.
