  3. Marine Advisory Program, Sea Grant
    Virginia Sea Grant facilitates research, educational, and outreach activities promoting sustainable management of marine resources.
  4. Marine Science Minor
    The School of Marine Science at VIMS partners with Arts & Sciences at W&M to offer an undergraduates minor in marine science.
  5. Media Coverage of VIMS
    This website provides a database where you can search for articles about VIMS activities that have been published in print or electronic media.
  6. Menhaden
    Researchers at VIMS are involved in several projects designed to answer the concerns about the status of Atlantic menhaden stock and provide the data needed to manage Chesapeake Bay menhaden stocks in a sustainable manner.
  7. Meteorological and Hydrographic Data
    This website provides information and online databases for research on meteorological and hydrographic data.
  8. Microbial Ecology
    The Microbial Ecology lab is a research unit of the Department of Biological Sciences, Virginia Institute of Marine Science, Gloucester Point, Virginia and the School of Marine Science of The College of William & Mary.
  9. Mine Burial Prediction Program
    A major goal of the ONR Mine Burial Prediction (MBP) Program is to provide the operational Navy a prototype model for forecasting mine burial which works with a known and useful degree of accuracy in regions of strategic interest, defined initially as sandy inner shelves dominated by waves.
  10. Models
    This website lists several VIMS Models including the Craney Island Eastward Expansion Project and Hydrodynamic Eutrophication Model (HEM-3D).
  11. Molluscan Ecology Program
    The Molluscan Ecology Program within the Department of Fisheries Science at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) is a dynamic research group that derives its origins from the original oyster biologists at the Virginia Fisheries Laboratory, the organizational ancestor to VIMS.
  12. Mycobacteriosis
    VIMS scientists have discovered that a new species of bacteria is largely responsible for a disease outbreak among Chesapeake Bay striped bass. The new species, which they named Mycobacterium shottsii, is closely related to M. marinum, a species known to infect both fish and humans.
