    Marine Facilities

    Marine Scotland Science houses state of the art aquaria which can function at full or partial salinity.  Theses modern aquaria are suitable for a wide range of experimentation including challenge experiments due to the excellent containment facilities.  In addition to the two large ships, Marine Scotland Science operates several smaller ships, one of which is dedicated to our ecosystem monitoring site located 3 nautical miles from Stonehaven which is situated 15 miles south of Aberdeen.  This site has been sampled on a weekly basis since 1997 for temperature, salinity, nutrients, chlorophyll, phytoplankton and zooplankton.  More recently samples have been collected for the assessment of ocean acidification.  Marine Scotland Science operates a second ecosystem monitoring site at Loch Ewe on the west coast of Scotland and has other coastal monitoring sites, at which primarily temperature and salinity are measured, around the Scottish coast.

     

    Laboratories

    Shore-based activities at the Marine Laboratory are conducted in well-equipped laboratories and aquaria. These cover areas including analytical chemistry (contaminants, nutrients, ocean acidification, micro-plastics), biology, ecotoxicology, acoustics, virology, bacteriology, pathology, physics, ecology, plankton, otolith reading, fish scale reading and a fish house.   The freshwater field stations are backed up by modern laboratories at the Freshwater Fisheries Laboratory.

    MSS has modern engineering and electronic workshops and is developing an integrated quality, data and information management system. Many areas of our science operate within an externally assessed accreditation system. Our statisticians ensure a sound statistical basis to our science which is fundamental when developing advice . The well-established libraries in both Aberdeen and Pitlochry hold some 20,000 volumes.

     

    Platforms

    Our two marine research ships (MRV Scotia and MRV Alba na Mara) ensure that we have excellent platforms from which to study both our near shore and offshore ecosystems, including the deep waters to the west of Scotland.
