Welcome to Moss Landing Marine Laboratories
Moss Landing Marine Laboratories (MLML) serves a consortium of northern and central California State University campuses and is dedicated to excellence in both education and research in marine science.
Dr. Welschmeyer's ballast water test cruise on board the Training Ship GOLDEN BEAR (Cal Maritime Academy) sailed from San Francisco to S. Korea, the Philippines, Guam, Saipan, Hawaii, Los Angeles, Mexico, San Diego and back to San Francisco over a 4 month period. The objective was to test the biological efficacy of new ballast water treatment systems; for the purpose of abating aquatic invasive species which are spread through ballast discharge procedures. Next year the team will test ballast treatment systems again on a lengthy cruise from San Francisco, through the Panama Canal, across the Atlantic, into the Mediterranean and returning home to San Francisco.
