Organisation profile

The Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) has been delivering independent marine science since 1884. Based in Oban, 150 staff are working for healthy and sustainably managed seas and oceans through world-class marine research, education and engagement with society.

Our research specialisms are grouped within three main themes:

Ocean systems
Arctic, Biogeochemistry, Oceans currents, Ecosystem function
Dynamic coasts
Climate change, Habitat, Industrial impact, People
Blue economy
Biotechnology, Energy, Farming, Fishing

Fingerprint Dive into the research topics where SAMS is active. These topic labels come from the works of this organisation's members. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
