Visiting Investigators at the DMC

Located on the pristine waters of the Damariscotta River Estuary, the Darling Marine Center is a user-friendly field station for marine researchers. Competitive rates and easy access to diverse intertidal habitats and the Gulf of Maine have drawn hundreds of scientists to the DMC in the last decade; many returning year after year. Our professional support staff can provide assistance with specimen collection, equipment use, laboratory setup, and housing.

Marine research has never been easier!

Peruse the laboratory and instrumentation section of our website or contact our lab manager at temiller@maine.edu for more information.

I had most comfortable accommodations, lab space was great, and everyone was really helpful in making sure I got what I needed to finish work — even the bryozoans cooperated. I will be back!
