Partnerships in Marine Science at the Coastal Science Campus and around Monterey Bay

The Institute of Marine Sciences partners in marine research include scientists from other educational institutes, federal and state agencies such as the U.S. Geological Survey, National Marine Fisheries Service and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, as well as non-governmental marine research and conservation facilities and organizations. The long history of marine research, biological diversity and uniqueness of the Monterey Bay area have attracted more than 20 different marine programs or facilities to the shoreline of the bay, which now involve over 2300 scientists and staff and a yearly budget of over $300 million.
