Belle Isle Aquarium

Detroit's Historic Belle Isle Aquarium Field Laboratory is located in the basement of the Bell eIsle Aquarium. The lab was established in partnership with the Belle Isle Conservancy and supports studies of invasive species, environmental DNA, and conservation and restoration of rare fish species. The adjacent natural areas allow investigations of terrestrial and aquatic invasive species, interface of groundwater and surface water, and infrastructure investigations associated with the primary Detroit water intake at this location.
