Bimini Biological Field Station

Short Description

Founded in 1990, the Bimini Biological Field Station (Sharklab) is operated by Dr. Samuel H. Gruber. Dr. Gruber came to Bimini decades ago after discovering what a vital habitat the islands were to an array of marine life, especially the Lemon Shark (Negaprion brevirostris). The station was set up as a place for Dr. Gruber, and his students, to carry out field research on elasmosbranchs full time. The facility is set up, and run similar to the research vessels where Dr. Gruber has spent much of his scientific career.
