The BBFS Sharklab
Founded in 1990, the Bimini Biological Field Station (Sharklab) is operated by Dr. Samuel H. Gruber. Dr. Gruber came to Bimini decades ago after discovering what a vital habitat the islands were to an array of marine life, especially the Lemon Shark (Negaprion brevirostris).
The station was set up as a place for Dr. Gruber, and his students, to carry out field research on elasmosbranchs full time. The facility is set up, and run similar to the research vessels where Dr. Gruber has spent much of his scientific career.
Since its inception, the BBFS has been host to several Principal Investigators and staff members, thousands of students and volunteers, dozens of film and news crews, and many other guests.
