Marine Resources Development Foundation, the 43 year old research and  
education organization in Key Largo, has recently expanded its  
facility and capability to host marine scientists and provide them  
with field support equipment and boats.

Included at our two acre facility are housing for visiting scientists,  
research staff support, lab space (wet and dry), a 26 foot Twin Vee  
dive boat and sampling equipment.

A 27 foot catamaran aluminum research vessel is also available  
complete with a suite of survey equipment.  On deck is a hydraulic  
winch with 3000 feet of cable, side scan sonar, sub bottom profiler,  
magnetometer and a Sea Eye ROV.  The boat is equipped with A-frames  
and capstans fore and aft to allow for deployment of scientific  
equipment.  The cabin is air conditioned and set up with wi-fi.  The  
boat can also be used as a scientific dive platform.
