The health of our oceans depends on gathering knowledge and sharing that knowledge with the world. At the Perry Institute for Marine Science, we use our research to educate government leaders, decision makers, students and teachers, conservation groups and others who are willing and able to make a difference. We provide them 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.
Perry Institute for Marine Science supports a wide range of research that is helping protect our oceans. Our research programs are designed to help us address conservation and management priorities for each focus area. Our main areas of research include;
the effective management and conservation of specific marine species, including the Nassau grouper fishery,
reversing the decline of coral reefs,
the effective management and planning of marine protected areas,
addressing issues related to climate change and marine ecosystems and,
the management of IUCN’s Global Marine Species Assessment
