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.


A juvenile Cabezon (Scorpaenichthys marmoratus) was collected as part of a MLML gradute student's ocean acidification experiments. The odor released from this predatory fish is used in testing the olfactory abilities of rockfish and gobies that have been reared in various levels of acidic seawater based on projections for future ocean conditions.
