Two marine laboratories (indoor and outdoor) are located alongside the dock, including flow through sea-water system supplying aquaria and water tables, a tank farm, and a climate controlled instrument room.

The Research Building on the mountain side of the road contains six climate controlled 'dry' laboratories.




The University of California Berkeley’s Richard B. Gump Research Station is dedicated to research and education, and consequently, these are the priorities of its staff and the sole use of its facilities. The Station is run according to an honor system. We do not constantly monitor visitors but serious breaches of trust are likely to lead to permanent expulsion from the Station. Please remember that the facilities are shared and everyone has an equal right to their use. If you have any problems, questions, or suggestions, please do not hesitate to let the staff know. Our job is to ensure that you achieve your research and educational goals as safely, efficiently and enjoyably as possible.
