Scientists at the Marine Biology Station Piran, National Institute of Biology on the Slovenian coast will join researchers around the globe in a worldwide Ocean Sampling Day (OSD) on 21st of June 2015.
We are celebrating the World Oceans Day by opening our doors on Friday, June 5th 2015. Guided tours, interactive workshops,lectures and project

In the last days we received two calls by fishermen who unfortunately noticed a dolphin getting caught in the net and died. This phenomenon is rare and was not recorded in the last years. Tilen Genov from Društvo Morigenos along with the colleagues from MBP put the dolphin out of the water. The dolphin was an adult male (3.20 m in length).

In January (17th - 18th January 2015) we experienced a breakdown of our underwater camer situated in the natural protected area of Punta Madona. Today we changed the connecting cables and returned the camera back to its original location. We wish you a pleasant experience in viewing the underwater world near Piran available at this link.
On Monday, 9th February 2015 we opened the exhibition 'BIOGENIC FORMATIONS IN SLOVENIAN COASTAL SEA' at the Marine Biology Station, Fornace 41, Piran.
New data, close to historical records were recorded due to yesterday's weather:
The last southern wind at the end of the week detached the connector cables on an already obsolete cable, connecting our underwater camera with the receiveng computer. The galvanization of connectors to a new cable is ongoing and will hopefully be finished soon.
