Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML)

PML LogoPlymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) is an independent, impartial provider of scientific research, contract services and advice for the marine environment, with a focus on understanding how marine ecosystems function and reducing uncertainty about the complex biological, chemical and physical processes and structures that sustain life in the seas and their role in the Earth system.

England Algae BloomAs one of the world’s first truly multidisciplinary marine research centres, PML delivers highly innovative research and solutions for national and international marine and coastal programmes. The research at PML is timely and highly relevant to UK and international societal needs and its research, development and training programmes have at their core the mission to contribute to issues concerned with understanding global change and the health and sustainability of marine ecosystems.
