Welcome to the New Zealand Marine Sciences Society

We exist to support and connect marine science and scientists across a wide range of disciplines in New Zealand

NZMSS is a non-profit organization, formed in 1960 as a constituent society of New Zealand’s Royal Society

What We Do

Our goal is to keep the marine science community connected, supported and involved in marine issues.

Here is how we do it:

NZMSS Membership

NZMSS membership is available to all those with a scientific interest in the marine environment, including the uptake of science in marine policy, resource management, conservation and the marine business sector.

Most of our members renew their membership when they register for our annual conference. For this reason, we do not send out renewal notifications until after the conference. If you did not attend the conference and want to join NZMSS then please click on the link below
