The Sydney Institute of Marine Science is a collaborative, multi-university marine science facility at Chowder Bay on Sydney Harbour. The Institute has repurposed an old naval facility to become the leading multidisciplinary marine facility in NSW. It was designed to enable science and processing of samples ranging from the most basic of field collecting to sophisticated molecular biology. SIMS has successfully developed government-academic partnerships and now hosts 16 NSW Fishery scientists onsite.
