Marine Research Group
The Marine Research Group meets on the evening of the second Monday of each month at the FNCV's meeting rooms. The group was originally formed as an autonomous body in 1957 and merged with the FNCV during 1997. The group has an active program of field research into marine life and a full program of speakers.
Members of the group include people actively doing research into Foraminifera, hydroids, bryozoans, echinoderms and molluscs (especially nudibranchs).
