About Us

Marine & Environmental Research (MER) Lab is based at the east side of touristic Limassol, south coast of Cyprus and operates in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Our upgraded facilities are about 200 m from the beach, less than 2 km from the ancient port of Amathounta and very near Marine Protected Areas with artificial reefs, pristine rocky coastlines and some that are heavily impacted by multiple anthropogenic stressors; providing thus ideal conditions for marine monitoring, research and conservation.

Our company is a Research Performing SME and a reliable key partner to universities, research institutes, NGOs, and policy-makers. Cyprus is a great study site due to its location and natural conditions. We have experience with local and EU research projects and we welcome research partnerships in the field of marine sciences.


We specialize in marine surveys and environmental baseline characterization, evaluation of the impacts of proposed and existing coastal or offshore developments, proposition of mitigation measures and monitoring of biotic and abiotic variables.


Fisheries are collapsing. Populations of most large fish are overexploited. There is now an urgent need to manage fisheries sustainably. MER personnel have participated as observers on-board in several fishery techniques, and have experience with all fishery types, collection of data, and analysis of population dynamics.


Aquaculture produces most of the seafood, but the sustainability of this practice is questionable. We work closely with fish farms of the island and we offer a range of services, such as, management, environmental consulting, disease diagnostics, nutrition, advanced infrastructure and biomitigation.
