Welcome to our Interactive Marine Archive
At the Marine Institute we have a beautiful archive of special historical marine resources. We invite you to explore two collections we hold, the Sea and Inland Fisheries reports from 1839-1987, and the Scientific Investigations collection which spans from 1901-1926.
You can explore these important series through our Interactive Timeline, Oyster Habitat Map, Scientist Trivia and Vessel Information. You can also delve right into the source material, as we have caringly digitised each volume and made them available in their entirety on our Open Access Repository.
This is your opportunity to explore our unique and rare collection, which has previously only been available by appointment in hard copy on-site at the Marine Institute. This special collection has been digitised and made available through a collaborative project between our library and FEAS department and funded under the EMFF Marine Biodiversity Scheme.
