Through the use of state-of-the-art scientific equipment, hard-core number crunching, and old-fashioned, back-breaking fieldwork, institute scientists are learning about things that affect the every day lives of all people living on this planet.
The institute is based in Port Aransas, but its scientists address issues worldwide. From climate to food, everyone on this planet is affected by or dependent upon the oceans.
Research at the Marine Science Institute falls into three broad categories: biogeochemistry, fish physiology and ecology, and ecosystem dynamics.
Our research is conducted under the ethical guidelines developed by our research staff.
