Marine Biology Société Jersiaise

Student Projects

Since 2010 the Marine Biology Section has co-supervised (or assisted ) over twenty local  students with their BSc, MSc or Baccalaureate seashore research projects.


The results from student projects have shed a great deal of light on the local marine environment and the project work has covered everything from habitat monitoring to genetic analysis of local species. Recent projects include a study of maerl beds of Les Écréhous reef, the biology and behaviour of invasive crab species, seagrass monitoring and marine spatial planning studies.


The collective experience and expertise of the Marine Biology Section enhances any student project and their results and data are a great means of accomplishing targeted  areas of work or of exploring new fields of research.


The Section is always willing to assist students with their studies and project work. We can suggest project ideas and usually assist with supervision and fieldwork. Please note that we do not have any funding available to assist with travel, living expenses, accommodation, etc.
