About us

Enabling Productive Oceans...

SAMS Research Services Ltd (SRSL) provides specialist marine consultancy and survey services, under pinned by cutting-edge science. We enable our clients to understand and mitigate the risks involved in industry interaction with the marine environment; to maximise productivity and sustainability.

SRSL is the wholly-owned trading subsidiary of the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS), and is based at the Scottish Marine Institute, Oban. As such, SRSL has been a part of the SAMS Group since 2002. Through the multidisciplinary marine research and in-house facilities of the Scottish Marine Institute, SRSL provides a bespoke service, based on a synergistic approach to complex projects that single discipline organisations simply cannot achieve. We project manage intellectual expertise, laboratory work and survey schedules to ensure delivery to time and budget for our clients.

SRSL is a respected and independent third-party, providing reliable and robust environmental assessments that industry can trust.
