Verena Marine Biology Research Centre

Marine Biology Research Centre


The Marine Biology Research Centre (MRC) in Kerteminde belongs to the University of Southern Denmark’s department of Biology and is located directly at the passage of the Great Belt and Kerteminde Fjord on the island of Fyn.

The project’s main focusses are bioacoustics, psychophysics and animal behaviour research that is carried out working with both the three grey seals – Nino, Oskar and Odin – and the two common murres – Blue and Green.

The animal training is entirely based on positive reinforcement and is also crucial for voluntary husbandry procedures and the animals’ general welfare and activeness.
