Pritzker marine Biology Research Center

The Pritzker Marine Biology Research Center is the only marine research center in the country located on a liberal arts college campus.

This facility boasts seven research labs and over 100 aquaria, anchored by a 15,000 gallon research and display tank. Each tank in the Living Ecosystem Teaching and Research Aquarium features a different captive ecosystem, several with a camera to send images to a streaming video server. Through a natural filtration system designed by students, the center draws and recycles water from Sarasota Bay. At Pritzker, students and faculty also design outreach programs to engage the local community in the world of science.
