The Shallow Marine Surveys Group
conducts research through diving and exploration in the South Atlantic. Founded in 2006, we are a group of marine scientists, dive enthusiasts, and volunteers from the local community, all with a desire to contribute towards high quality marine ecological science, inshore resource assessments, conservation and education. Based in the Falkland Islands, we operate throughout the Falklands archipelago and the South Atlantic; most recently South Georgia, Ascension Island, St Helena Islands, and Tristan da Cunha.
SMSG welcomes contact from local and international organisations who wish to collaborate on marine research or seek advice on the logistics of research in the South Atlantic. We also invite contact from postgraduate students who may be considering proposals for research in inshore marine ecological studies.
