On World Oceans Day, people around our blue planet celebrate and honour the ocean, which connects us all.
 
Sydney Opera House gets an Artificial Reef 

After first announcing the project in 2017, a series of modular artificial reefs have now been installed alongside the Opera House sea wall. The pioneering project, led by UTS Professor of Marine Ecology David Booth and funded through a NSW Government Environmental Trust Restoration & Rehabilitation grant, aims to explore new ways to increase marine biodiversity in Sydney Harbour. We've been watching the structures come together here at SIMS under the watchful eye of designer Alex Goad so deployment day was very rewarding.

SIMS warmly congratulates Professor Maria Byrne 
Newly elected Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science -
The Highest Honour in Australian Science


Professor Maria Byrne from the University of Sydney is  a recognised leader in Global Change Biology, documenting the impacts of ocean acidification and warming on marine invertebrate life stages and revealing the adaptability of marine species that is key to understanding their future prospects. Excitingly for SIMS much of Maria's research is conducted here in the SIMS Ian Potter Research Aquarium.

Does Thermal Stress in Adults alter Thermal Stress in Offspring

Due to the intense and prolonged nature of heat waves in recent years, it is no longer sufficient to predict species' responses to future conditions based on ”average warming”. It is imperative that research shifts to assessing the impact of repeated, intense heatwave events and how organisms will respond across generations. This project is a collaboration between the Swire Institute of Marine Science in Hong Kong and the University of Sydney and is being conducted at the SIMS Ian Potter Research Aquarium.
