Mote Marine Laboratory

From its humble beginnings as a one-woman operation in 1955, Mote Marine Laboratory is now one of the world’s few remaining private marine research laboratories. From the original focus on sharks, Mote research has expanded to include seven major areas of concentration, organized into seven research centers. While each center focuses on its own specialty, Mote scientists are able to partner with others within the lab to integrate efforts across a number of fields. This approach has led to discoveries that establish Mote as a global leader in many areas of marine science. Mote scientists are committed to that process of discovery – advancing our understanding of the sea and what is needed to sustain it.
