The Centre for Marine Ecosystems Research (CMER) has built a solid reputation with its collaborative approach in coastal marine research in Australia and worldwide. Our contribution to marine science has facilitated improved understanding of coastal marine habitat connectivity & trophic interactions, human impacts, marine microbial ecology, blue carbon & paleo reconstruction, conservation & fisheries biology, and marine radioactivity tracers which form our key research themes. These themes encompass a wide range of ecosystems in both tropical to temperate environments.

Comprising a highly talented leadership team, postdoctoral research fellows, postgraduate students and adjunct researchers from CSIRO, state government and several international universities and research organisations, our approach in investigative research will continue to influence the management of existing and potential concerns in the marine environment.

Past graduates and members of the Centre are currently employed in a wide range of academic, regulatory and industry positions around the globe. We welcome and provide opportunities for visiting researchers, exchange and postgraduate students, interns, and adjuncts to become part of a respected international marine research Centre.
