It is the oldest printer and publisher in the world, having been operating continuously since 1584, and is one of the largest academic publishers globally.

Charting Nature donated 100 copies of their informative and beautiful Seafood Guide posters. The posters are available in fish or shellfish and come in two sizes 12 x 36 inches or 24 x 36 inches. The beautifully illustrated posters are designed to help consumers choose sustainable seafood. The posters were illustrated by reknowned artist Brenda Guild Gillespie and the informative content was compiled by the Seafood Choices Alliance. These posters are not only packed with information, they are works of art that would be beautiful in any kitchen - home or commercial.

DK Publishing donated copies of their wonderful book Reef to MarineBio, which we are giving to new members who donate $100 or more to MarineBio. The book contains a vivid collection of photographs from underwater photography collective Scubazoo, that reveals reefs as they’ve never been seen before. We're big fans of DK Publishing for their book Ocean and we thank them for their generous donation of the new book Reef.

Porbeagle Press donated several hundred copies of their Diving Almanac chock full of information on all things diving. From great dive destinations to dive medicine, this book covers it all. We still have plenty of first edition copies to give away with a $25 membership and the 2008 edition is out and available for purchase. There is not another single resource in print or online with as much information as there is in this book. Undercurrent magazine calls this “perhaps the best single reference book published for divers.” We’d like to thank the book’s author, Jeffrey Gallant, who kindly donated copies of the almanac to MarineBio to support our work. Not only are we enjoying reading it, now our members are too!

Simon and Schuster donated copies of In Their Shoes, an excellent book for young people to learn how different careers evolve, what’s needed to embark on them, and what can be expected on the job. Careers that include what it’s like to be a marine biologist!
