Welcome to the Center for Marine Science!

We are recognized as a national site for conducting research that contributes to understanding environmental processes and problems. Through research, education and outreach, the Center strives to increase knowledge and cultivate public awareness about the marine sciences.  Currently there are more than 100 active research programs ongoing at CMS.  You will find over 140 scientists, staff and students here at CMS in our teaching and research facility located on the intracoastal waterway. 

Recently, our campus grew to include a new 11,000 sq. ft. Shellfish Research Hatchery project and a 70,000 sq. ft. Marine Biotechnology facility. That means we now have over 180,000 sq. ft. of research space dedicated to interdisciplinary marine science research.

Thank you for visiting our website!
