Dear friends and colleagues!

Laboratory of Marine Benthos Ecology and Hydrobiology is the scientific and educational centre for young researchers. We investigate seas and their dwellers. The main Laboratory purpose is increasing children's scientific research abilities and exciting their interests to sea. All of our teachers are professional scientists, specializing in marine biology. For 40 years of our activity, more than 200 of our graduates (among over 600) devote themselves to sea and science.

Every year we accept young people, who're interested in nature, animals and plants and dream about travels and discoveries. Unlike most other children's centres in Saint-Petersburg, our Laboratory has not only necessary equipment for the marine explorations, but also a station at the White sea, where our expeditions are held.
