About AIMS

"The Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) is Australia’s tropical marine research agency"

We play a pivotal role in providing large-scale, long-term and world-class research that helps governments, industry and the wider community to make informed decisions about the management of Australia’s marine estate.

Our commitment

To undertake research that addresses real needs and provides impartial, authoritative advice, and that supports both the protection and sustainable use of our marine heritage, now and into the future.   

How are we doing this?

We are achieving this through innovative scientific and technological research, and with the help of our people,  industry and research partnerships, infrastructure, and comprehensive data sets. 

This work includes:

1. Conducting strategic and applied research into marine life, from microbes to whole-of-ecosystems, and the processes that sustain them

2. Monitoring the condition and trends in health of the marine environment

3. Building models and decision-support tools to assist interpretation of the data collected

4. Developing a broad spectrum of enabling technologies, from molecular sciences to ocean technologies.
