At the Perry Institute for Marine Science, we're on a constant quest for knowledge that will help us better understand the sea and protect our oceans. We host scientists from around the world at our research center on Lee Stocking Island in the Bahamas. Our laboratory is one of the largest and most productive in the Caribbean region, and our field station is highly-regarded by the most esteemed research institutions in the U.S. and abroad. Resident and visiting scientists research a variety of topics - from fisheries and Marine Protected Areas, to corals, coastal ecosystems, and threatened species.

The information we gather provides government leaders, decision makers, conservation groups and others with the information they need to understand how the oceans work, why they're vital to our existence and, ultimately, how they can be repaired and protected. Our research, conducted in the Caribbean, provides relevant and beneficial information to nearly every marine ecosystem in America - and the world.

Perry Institute for Marine Science in-house research

Our resident scientists focus their research on four areas - fisheries, ecosystems, coral reefs, and marine biodiversity. You can learn more about these programs in our Research Spotlight section.

Caribbean Marine Research Center research

The Perry Institute for Marine Science is home to the Caribbean Marine Research Center. The Caribbean Marine Research Center is one of six national centers designated by the United States government that support undersea research and scientific exploration through NOAA's Undersea Research Program (NURP). NURP projects provide the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) with the information they need to protect and manage America's living marine and coastal resources.

Scientists and researchers at the Caribbean Marine Research Center focus on four key areas - building sustainable fisheries, maintaining healthy coastal ecosystems, predicting environmental change, and gaining new biological and economical value from the sea.
