FSU Coastal & Marine Laboratory

The FSU Coastal & Marine Laboratory engages in innovative, interdisciplinary research, education, and outreach focused on the management and conservation of coastal and marine ecosystems of the northeastern Gulf of Mexico.

R/V Apalachee & Fleet of Small Boats

The FSUCML fleet provides support for a range of research needs, from nearshore coastal and marine environments, to the deep sea.  The 65-ft R/V Apalachee, the flagship of the FSUCML fleet, has a wide stern deck that is equipped with an A-frame and associated deck winch, facilitating the deployment and recovery of field equipment from CTDs to ROVs.  The smaller vessels range in size from 14 to 28 ft., including pontoon and v-hull boats, as well as a zodiac and a fleet of kayaks for nearshore work.

Laboratories & Field Sites

The FSUCML is well-equipped to support ecological and oceanographic research in the remarkably diverse habitats along the coast and far offshore.  Research space includes laboratories, greenhouses, environmental chambers, a necropsy room, and a wide array of holding tanks, aquarium systems, and experimental tanks, with open deck space to support mesocosm experiments.

Housing, Meetings, & Retreats

The FSUCML supports one-day visits and extended stays for field courses, research, and institutional meetings or retreats.  Housing is available for up to 40 people and meeting spaces hold from 10 to 100.  Arrange a walk along the “Edge of the Sea” with our resident naturalist for an added bit of interest.
