The Marine Biological Association has been at the forefront of promoting marine biology since 1884. This is achieved in a number of ways from running an internationally recognised education programme through to the provision of high-quality training courses. Members receive discounts for MBA activities as well as for use of our well-equipped meeting and conference rooms.
Facilities such as National Marine Biological Library are visited by people the world-over (members are provided free access) and the MBA continues to publish well-established scientific journals in addition to the more recent member's magazine The Marine Biologist.
MBA members play a key role in raising the profile of marine biology by, among other things, contributing expertise to Policy Advice and representing the MBA to the wider marine biological community.
