Detailed Information:
Ned Lynas, a Canadian zoologist and behaviourist, directed the research for 25 seasons. Since fall 2002, the research station is directed by Ursula Tscherter in close collaboration with several other research organisations under the supervision from the Canadian departement of Fisheries and Oceans and Parcs Canada (Parc marin du Saguenay-Saint-Laurant.

In 1978 we established a research station on the north shore of the St. Lawrence Estuary, an incredibly rich and diverse marine environment. Our primary focus is the numerous minke, finback, blue and humpback whales that frequent these summer feeding grounds, but we also conduct relevant observations on harbour porpoise, beluga and sperm whale.

ORES has launched a campaign that started with the new millennium called The ORES Campaign To Promote The Lives of Minke Whales to raise public awarness of the incredible minke whale through press articles and reports, photographs, film and videos and an "Adopt a Minke" program.
