How We Do Things at IISD-ELA: Researching Mercury
How We Do Things at IISD-ELA is a series of videos that highlight research conducted by scientists at the IISD Experimental Lakes Area (IISD-ELA), a unique freshwater science research facility in northwest Ontario, Canada.
This video explores the groundbreaking work that has been carried out at IISD-ELA to determine what impact mercury has on our water, and how we can best improve it.

Not just another fish tale: is there a difference between ageing and getting old?
Some creatures don’t age in the same way that humans do, implying that getting old does not necessarily lead to declining health. This is according to a new study focused on fish ageing led by an international team of biologists—the findings of which have just been published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences.
Green Tech: Fishing for Dark Data
How do antidepressants affect fish? Can biological remediation improve water health (e.g. intentionally planting cattails in dirty waterways)? How can the Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, and artificial intelligence (AI) innovate freshwater research? These are just a few of the questions researchers at International Institute for Sustainable Development’s (IISD) Experimental Lakes Area (ELA) have been tackling over the last few years.
