The St. Lawrence Seaway extends more than 2,300 miles from the Atlantic Ocean to the top of the Great Lakes, connecting Canada and the United States. It has been called the “gateway to North America,” serving as an industrial transportation corridor for commodities like iron and coal, grain, machinery and more, as well as a recreational waterway for boaters and anglers. But the St. Lawrence Seaway also is a prime ecosystem for studying changes occurring in the ocean as a result of the synergistic impacts of climate change.
