The Hel Marine Station

was established in 1992 and is a field station in the organizational structure of the Institute of Oceanography in the Faculty of Oceanography and Geography at the University of Gdańsk. As the only station of its kind in Poland it is open to the research needs of the whole scientific community of the country and provides field support for all research groups working in this region (academic teams from various higher schools, institutes in this line of work and the Polish Academy of Sciences). Hel Marine Station cooperated in many projects with the Foundation for the Development of Gdansk University providing both the scientific expertise in marine mammals and fieldwork capacity.
