The ocean is our passion. And science is our catalyst to help our oceans heal, thrive and continue to be havens of sustainable life, life-improving science and life-giving solutions. The brightest minds will have the greatest impact on our lives. And some of the world’s most inspired scientific minds in the ocean community are right here at Mote Marine Laboratory.
