Welcome to MarineQuest, the annual open house of the FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. For over 25 years, MarineQuest has welcomed thousands of people through our doors to learn more about Florida’s fish, wildlife, and their habitats, and the cutting-edge research that Institute scientists are leading all around the state. MarineQuest is our chance to share our research with you – our passion, focus, and dedication to our mission to conduct collaborative research and monitoring to provide timely information and guidance to protect, conserve, and manage Florida’s fish and wildlife resources.

Normally an in-person event, MarineQuest was held virtually in 2020 and 2021. We invite you to view content from our virtual events below and look forward to seeing you in person for our next MarineQuest event in October 2022.
