Florida Oceanographic Society, Inc. Overview
Florida Oceanographic Society, founded in 1964, was organized to increase our knowledge and understanding of Florida's ocean and coastal environments through education and research. In the sixties visiting scientists from Woods Hole and Cornell Medical were conducting artificial gill and kidney research using live sharks from the Treasure Coast. During the seventies the Society hosted Aquaculture research of shrimp with the American Academy of Ocean Sciences. In the eighties we revised and republished the Source Book of Marine Sciences used as a lab text in over 250 schools throughout the States. The facilities at the Coastal Science Center on Hutchinson Island include Aquariums, touch tanks, interactive exhibits and 40 acres of mangrove marsh and hardwood hammocks with educational nature trails. Program development is always underway at elementary, middle and high school levels as well as college, seniors and pre-school areas.
