Shoals Marine Laboratory

Operating under the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell University in cooperation with the University of New Hampshire at Durham, the Shoals Marine Lab (SML) offers a unique opportunity for students to experience marine science. Located on 95-acre Appledore Island, Isles of Shoals in the Gulf of Maine, this near-pristine environment allows students to study many aspects of the intertidal and sub-tidal ecologies. The laboratory facilities on the island are complemented by the field capabilities of the SML-owned research vessel, John M. Kingsbury.
