The World’s Largest Freshwater Laboratory

Research on the challenges that face natural freshwater bodies began at the IISD Experimental Lakes Area, the world’s largest outdoor freshwater laboratory, in the late 1960s. The site includes 58 freshwater lakes and is located in the Kenora District, Ontario, Canada. The laboratory was defunded by the previous Canadian government administration. It had been operated by Fisheries and Oceans Canada until that time. The International Institute for Sustainable Development agreed to be the long-term operator of the research facility in 2014.
