Marine Science Today (MST) is an online resource for marine and ocean related issues designed to close the gap between scientific research and people who care for and interact with the ocean. Currently, there are very few sources for unbiased, ocean-related news. All too frequently, information is only published by research institutions and is filled with jargon too complex for readers outside of academia. MST takes the latest research and marine science news and translates it so it can be easily read and enjoyed by anyone passionate about the ocean, no matter their science background. Marine Science Today envisions an informed public that acts to protect the world’s ocean.
