AIMS produces world-class innovative research examining today's big questions in tropical marine science: how will coral reef ecosystems respond to climate change? What role do marine microbes play in the functioning of healthy ecosystems? What is happening to endangered whale shark populations? How does good water quality contribute to sustaining commercial fisheries, tourism and recreational angling?

AIMS is consistently ranked among the top one per cent of specialist research institutions internationally. Many of our scientists are world authorities in their field and have achieved international acclaim for their research.

AIMS encourages the media to source information from this website and through direct conversation with the Institute's scientists in the preparation of news, features, programs and other material on marine science topics and issues.
