About St Abbs
Established as a not-for-profit venture in 2010, the St Abbs Marine Station is a charity dedicated to marine science, conservation and education.
The charity has been funded to date entirely by private donors. From 2015 to 2020 the St Abbs Marine Station had a tripartite institutional agreement with Heriot-Watt University and Edinburgh Napier University. This highly successful collaboration maximised the use of the facility and allowed a full programme of research to be implemented, until its conclusion earlier this year. 2020 will see the announcement of another prestigious Scottish university as our new partner.
