making science fun again
The ocean is our classroom
Located in Puerto Rico, we are a field-course coordination and scientific education company with a mission to outfit our upcoming scientists with the skills they need to conserve and protect our natural resources. We have the experience necessary to train and assist those in our field with research and field techniques.
for all your research needs
Services & Skills
Explore the island of Puerto Rico - both in and out of the water. Our team of experienced field biologists will assist in everything from experimental design, implementing your current design, leading your groups and more. We work frequently with university field courses and individual scientists requiring field assistance. Below is a sample of what we offer.

Projects & Partners
assessing impacts of the lionfish invasion
We work with local agencies to survey lionfish populations around the island. We also assist with coordinating awareness festivals and lionfish removals.
marine reserve effectiveness
We have a long-term monitoring project in the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve in Rincon. Over time, we assess fish and benthic communities to detect changes in the reserve effectiveness.
nassau grouper spawning aggregation monitoring
Using acoustic technologies and underwater visual census, we perform long-term monitoring of the last known spawning aggregation of the endangered Nassau grouper in Puerto Rico.
nurse shark population assessment
Using conventional tagging, we will begin monitoring an aggregation of nurse sharks in summer 2017. This will allow us to assess population connectivity around the island.
