Tjärnö Marine Laboratory is located by Sweden's most species-rich marine area in the northern part of Bohuslän province. At the Research Station school classes and other groups can book a visit. The public is welcome to visit Tjärnö Marine Laboratory all year around. Most activities are offered during summer vacation period (early July to mid-August)

The Ocean Blues project wants to turn eco-anxiety into eco-action by linking non-academic young adults to the scientific community. The long-term goal is a sustainable use of the ocean.
