Our vision is for a healthy and sustainable ocean
Plymouth Marine Laboratory conducts multidisciplinary research at the cutting edge of marine science to understand the complex marine environment and help solve the challenges it faces.Who we areOur mission and values
PML is such an enriching and welcoming environment that promotes and delivers such a hugely impactful ethos. My work as a PhD student specialising in ecotoxicology brings a new perspective of science to both PML and wider society. I am hugely motivated to learn more about the effect of chemicals and pollutants on the marine environment, particularly the effect of sunscreens and UV filters on marine biota.Anneliese Hodge
Addressing global challenges
Climate change, ocean acidification, pollution and over-exploitation of natural resources – the ocean is facing greater challenges than ever. At PML we work at global, regional and local levels, alongside partners across the world, to deliver the science needed for a sustainable ocean future.View our partnerships
Understanding a changing planet
Human influence has had detrimental effects on the atmosphere, ocean and land, including the warming and acidification of the marine environment. PML is renowned for its unique expertise in monitoring the effects of these changes, integrating traditional research with advanced digital science techniques and technologies.
