Keys Marine Lab

FIO operates the FWC/FWRI-owned Keys Marine Laboratory. The Keys Marine Laboratory, situated right in the middle of the Florida Keys, is a platform that provides unique opportunities for short and long term field and laboratory experiences and research for undergraduate and graduate students and academic and non academic scientists. KML provides easy access to Florida Bay, the Everglades National Park, the Florida Current, and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.

The facility offers a unique opportunity for college level education and researchers studying the only tropical marine ecosystems in the continental United States.
