BIOS's mission is to seek and share fundamental knowledge of the oceans through state-of-the-art scientific research, world-class field expeditions and comprehensive educational experiences.

BIOS is committed to promoting diversity and equity in marine science and the wider STEM community. We strive to be a welcoming and inclusive community where all employees and visitors can develop, learn, grow, and discover, without regard to race, gender, sexuality, age, physical ability, creed, or country of origin. BIOS faculty and staff will honor and respect your experiences, perspectives, and unique identity.

In 2013 the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) celebrated 110 years of excellence in ocean science research and education.
