Behind the Scenes

Seawater System

Seawater SystemOur seawater system is the “lifeblood” of this marine science campus. It supplies natural, high-quality seawater that supports living marine plants and animals ranging from tiny phytoplankton to large seals and dolphins. Our ability to pump fresh, cold, oxygenated seawater 24 hours a day, every day of the year, is critical to the operation of the marine lab and its living creatures.

The system produces about 1 million gallons per day of seawater. When the pumps are running, we can pump 700-1,000 gallons per minute out of the ocean.
