A new ocean community observatory will soon be installed in the waters off Campbell River.
The observatory is part of a project by Ocean Networks Canada.
Spokesperson Maia Hoeberechts says it will be installed right off Discovery Pier and will provide real-time data that will be available online.
Hoeberechts says the goal is to gather base-line data for conditions on the coast.
Observatories will be installed in Prince George and Kitamaat later this month.
