The Center for Habitat Studies: Who we are and what we do

The Center for Habitat Studies was established as a geophysical institute of Moss Landing Marine Laboratories (MLML) in 1994 to characterize and map marine benthic habitats and marine and coastal geohazards. Since that time it has grown into a geological and biological research facility that is among the world leaders in the field of deep-water marine benthic habitat mapping. The primary focus of the Center is two-fold: 1) to distinguish and map marine deep-water habitats for the purpose of managing commercially important fish stocks and sustaining demersal fisheries, and 2) to characterize seafloor morphology and geology. Scientists at the Habitat Center have broad experience in the collection and analysis of data necessary for habitat studies of demersal fishes and invertebrates… Read More About US
