For Scientists

MarineBio is currently seeking marine life/biology and conservation academics/professionals to serve as advisors.

TritoniaSeeking Marine Biologists or Marine Life Scientists

These are volunteer positions. Each Advisor of a marine species group is responsible for creating and suggesting new content or updates to content on the MarineBio Network concerning their area of expertise. Bylines/credit will be included of course. In exchange, MarineBio will promote the work of each Advisor as is appropriate.

We are currently looking for Advisors for the following marine groups:

Marine Birds
Marine Fishes
Marine Reptiles…

No HTML knowledge is required, MarineBio personnel will handle all site updates and/or contributed content. Email David Campbell at [email protected] or call us at +1 (713) 248-2576 if you’re interested.

The following content is made available specifically available for marine life scientists (with more in the works). Please contact us with any suggestions.

Relevant Journals

We list and describe the scientific journals we recommend and periodically review for information concerning marine life on our Relevant Journals page.


Throughout the site we link to various useful online resources concerning marine life.

We describe many of those and other research tools on our Marine Life Research Tools & Methods page as well.

Our main species database is located at the Marine Species Search Engine page and results include site pages and posts.

Every page has a comment form below it that allows visitors to send us an email about any errors or mistakes they may find for each specific species/page/post. Feel free to send us feedback at anytime. We’re committed to making the information on the MarineBio Network as accurate as possible and appreciate all comments.

Species launches and various content work is constantly underway and we announce new items usually on the What’s New? page.

Expedition Galleries are located at: /gallery/photos. The contributors and volunteers who have helped make MarineBio great are listed on /marinebio/contributors and volunteer and volunteer information is located at /marinebio/volunteers.

  • Discovery without Destruction: a minimally invasive approach to new species

    A new study by Ziegler and Sargony (2021) has demonstrated how non-invasive methods can be used to record and catalogue new species of megafauna. Traditional methods including collecting specimens to handle physically which, aside from killing the specimen, can also damage the structures of the organism - impairing proper scientific understanding. While non-destructive imaging techniques have proven effective in describing novel species of small organisms this is the first time it has be utilised for a deep-sea megafauna, the cirrate octopus - Grimpoteuthis imperator.

  • Study shows acute toxicity of microplastics in filter feeding fish

    A recent paper by Zhang et al. (2021) explores the acute toxicity of microplastics on a filter-feeding planktivorous fish, Silver Carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix).

  • Food for thought: can climate change affect wild appetites?

    In a recent forum by Youngentob et al. (2021) pose this fascinating question, given that endotherms commonly reduce their voluntary food intake in warm temperatures - could reduced food intake be an overlooked driver of climate change casualties?

  • Octopuses, neighbourly or not?

    A recent study in the journal of Marine Biology has tested a different method of investigating social behaviour in octopuses. Traditionally octopuses have been seen as asocial creatures that ignore others of their species (conspecifics) but recent discoveries of aggregations or groups of wild octopuses such as: algae octopuses (Abdopus aculeatus), Graneledone octopuses, Muusoctopus octopuses, Caribbean Reef Octopuses (Octopus briareus), Atlantic pygmy octopuses (Octopus joubini), Octopus laqueus, Common Sydney octopuses (Octopus tetricus) and Vulcanoctopus hydrothermalis.
