    About Us

    For over 125 years, UNC-Chapel Hill has been advancing, teaching, and sharing marine science knowledge.  From the coast of North Carolina to distant shores across the globe, the UNC Institute of Marine Sciences, in Morehead City, focuses on water quality, fisheries, coastal ecosystems, and coastal hazards resilience. We conduct innovative research, offer experiential learning, provide unending public service, and encourage entrepreneurial pursuits.  Plus we hang out on boats, in salt marshes, and on rivers, sounds, and the ocean — with sharks, oysters, puffer fish, and all sorts of charismatic critters! Join us in our efforts to benefit the citizens of North Carolina, humankind across the globe, and the coastal environment itself. Give today!
