VMSC is a consortium of five Victorian tertiary institutions, together with CSIRO, EPA Victoria, and the State Government's Marine and Freshwater Fisheries Research Institute (MAFFRI). We operate marine teaching and research laboratories at Queenscliff, on the entrance to Port Phillip Bay, a large embayment on the southeast coast of Australia. The consortium aims to foster marine science research and teaching and provide synergies between VMSC partners. The facilities are available through negotiation to anyone with an interest in marine science.
The Marine and Freshwater Resources Institute was established in July 1996 by the Victorian Government "as the premier Institute to provide research, consultancy and education services required for the sustainable management of aquatic resources and their environment."
CAPIM is a consortium of world class researchers from The University of Melbourne, Melbourne Water, DPI (Vic), RMIT, and EPA (Vic). CAPIM creates a multidisciplinary research team to address the complicated issue of understanding the impact of pollution on the aquatic environment.
The Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) is Victoria's lead government agency for sustainable management of water resources, climate change, bushfires, public land, forests and ecosystems.
The Keough Lab is based in the Department of Zoology at the University of Melbourne, Australia. Our research primarily focuses on the ecology and behaviour of marine organisms and communities living in the temperate waters of southeastern Australia. We work in a variety of different marine habitats including the rocky shore, subtidal reefs, sea grass beds and sand/mudflats.
