The Marine Biological Association – an independent voice
As one of the world’s longest established marine learned societies, the MBA plays a crucial role in providing a clear independent voice to government, marine stakeholders and the wider public. Learned societies have a particular value to society because they “are able to make a contribution to intellectual and material well being because they are independent of government, research councils, universities, etc”. The MBA does not therefore speak on behalf of a single organisation or group but seeks to reflect the views and opinions of the entire marine biological community with members both nationally and internationally and those interested in marine science and the marine environment in addition to professional scientists.
