Making Waves in Marine Research

The Mote aquarium certainly isn’t just for show. Sarasota’s coastal location enables Mote to be at the forefront of marine biological research and technology. With more than 200 employees and 35 scientists working at Mote, guests are able to witness actual marine biological experiments and research in real time as they tour the aquarium. Mote’s mission is to provide a fun and educational environment to help locals and visitors better understand the unique ecosystems of Florida’s coast.
