The 6th MBA Young Marine Biologist Summit will focus on the theme of Hidden Ocean and is run in partnership with Save Our Seas Foundation.

This November, join fellow marine biology enthusiasts and professionals from around the world in a unique online gathering!

This year's theme will be 'Hidden Ocean' where we will be showcasing microscopic marine life-forms and the processes that underpin all life on our planet. Join us to find out the fascinating science behind these tiny organisms and the processes they are involved in, meet the people who study them and find out how you can get involved!

The Marine Biological Association organises an annual summit as an opportunity for young people (Up to 18) with an interest in marine biological science to meet professional marine scientists and students for inspiration and ideas, but also to share their own research and marine science activities.

  • This year's annual Young Marine Biologist (YMB) summit will take place over on the 26th of November 10:00 - 16:00 UK time.
  • Presentations are aimed at 13-18 year audience, but should include something for everyone.


The event is open to anyone from anywhere in the world, including non-members, but we hope that when you see the amazing work we do and opportunities we provide that you will consider joining the Association
