The Sydney Institute of Marine Science (SIMS), founded in 2005 and located on Chowder Bay in Sydney Harbour, is a world-leading marine science institute and the principal marine research facility in NSW.
SIMS is a partnership between Macquarie University, the University of NSW, the University of Sydney and the University of Technology, Sydney. The partnership is enhanced by collaborations with several state and federal government departments, the Australian Museum and the University of Wollongong. SIMS has over 100 scientists and graduate students associated with the Institute, representing a broad diversity of skills in marine science.
