Science Atlantic is a charitable association for scientists, university faculty, and science students that has been operating in Atlantic Canada since 1962. The association comprises 13 academic institutions and has a mandate to provide opportunities that foster and enrich students’ academic experiences; support and inspire researchers, educators, and the broader scientific community; and represent a collective voice to address important regional science issues. In support of this mandate, the Science Atlantic Aquaculture & Fisheries and Biology Committees host a joint annual conference that gives undergraduate students from the Atlantic region a chance to network as well as present and discuss their research with colleagues. Unfortunately, the 2020 conference slated for March 14-15 at Cape Breton University was canceled due to the Covid19 pandemic. The decision to cancel happened the day before the conference was set to begin. Because students were denied the opportunity to present their research we felt it was important to move forward with publishing the abstracts as a way of helping make up for this missed opportunity and to communicate their research results with the broader science community. The following are conference abstracts categorized into three parts: oral presentation in biology, oral presentation in Aquaculture & Fisheries, and poster presentation
