Activities SAMS one of the UK's leading marine science research organisations, and one of the oldest oceanographic institutions in the world, committed to increasing our knowledge and stewardship of the marine environment through research, education, maintenance of research infrastructure, and knowledge transfer. SAMS currently employs ca 140 staff and is based at the Scottish Marine Institute near Oban on the west coast of Scotland.

Our research activities encompass the entire breadth of marine science. While much of our research is highly multidisciplinary in nature, we are organised in four departments: Physics, sea ice and technology; biogeochemisty & earth sciences; ecology; and microbial and molecular biology. Our core strategic research programme is Oceans 2025 in which we collaborate with six other UK marine science organisations.
