Founded in 1872, the SZN is among the most influential research Institutions in the field of marine biology and ecology.

Read more about our history

The SZN carries on advanced research on the biology, ecology and evolution of marine organisms.

Read more about our research

A core activity of the SZN is the higher education and formation of young scientists to lead pure and applied research.
