Huge fish mouthWe are very proud (and quite excited) to announce that the Marine Laboratory will be participating in Doors Open Day (again) this year. Joining countless other hidden gems in Aberdeen City we will be open from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday 8 September which also corresponds with the first day of the Aberdeen Techfest public programme.Jelly agar with hundreds and thousands

Last year Marine Scotland (MS) colleagues provided a doors open day event with a twist that saw us join forces with the Stonehaven Tolbooth Museum to highlight our monitoring and sampling work within the Scottish Coastal Observatory.

This year, to coincide with Year of the Engineer and Year of Young People we will be giving visitors an inside view of the type of work that goes at the Marine Laboratory.

We will have a host of exhibits, displays, and interactive experiments in addition to guided tours around specific areas of our campus.

Visitors will also have the chance to:

  • take part in sweetie science;
  • experience life onboard the Scotia,
  • try their hand at otolith reading,
  • identify species on our fisheries CCTV, and
  • get up close with some fishy friends residing in our Fish House.

We look forward to seeing you there!
