Research mission statement:

To facilitate and initiate research that contributes to species conservation and the welfare of animals in our care.

SeaQuarium contributes to research in many ways; from allowing researchers access to study animal behaviour or collect physiological measurements to supplying them with biological samples and animal records. We can collaborate in projects initiated by endangered species breeding programmes, other aquariums, national and international conservation bodies and university staff.

SeaQuarium hosts a small number of students from local universities who collect data for Bsc/Msc dissertations on focal topics chosen by the SeaQuarium. We encourage applications from professional researchers and postgraduate students who are involved in projects which are in line with our research mission.

Due to the small number of spaces, students and researchers must apply in advance and go through a formal application and interview process.

All researchers wishing to collaborate with SeaQuarium must fill out a 'Project Proposal Form' and comply with the SeaQuarium 'Research Policy'.


Fill in our online contact form for further information and our student co-ordinator will respond to your enquiry.
