Activities The Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn of Naples was established in 1872 by the German scientist Anton Dohrn. It is at present a public research organization controlled by the Ministero dell'Istruzione dell'Università e della Ricerca.

img1071002161151 080801095808 .jpgThe Stazione Zoologica is among the top research institutions in the world in the fields of marine biology and ecology. Initiated by its founder with the mission to promote basic research by hosting scientists that needed marine organisms for their studies, it is now based on the research carried out by its own staff.

The mission of the Stazione Zoologica is: to conduct basic research in biology and ecology with a focus on marine organisms and environment, to allow access to marine organisms for the international scientific community, to provide expert advise for public bodies on the marine environment and to provide high level training in its mission areas.
