Biographies

The Victorian Institute of Marine Sciences (VIMS) was established by the Victorian Institute of Marine Sciences Act 1974 as a body corporate, its objects including: 'to provide facilities for and foster, carry on and support scientific research and technological development in all branches of learning concerning or touching upon marine sciences, including but without limiting the generality of that expression, the sea, the sea-bed, sea shores, and the resources and inhabitants thereof and mankind's relationship with the use of the sea'. VIMS began operations in 1978. In July 1996 the Victorian Institute of Marine Sciences, along with two other marine and freshwater groups, became a part of the Marine and Freshwater Resources Institute (MAFRI). [The Institute was abolished by the Victorian Institute of Marine Sciences (Repeal) Act 1998, and its assets and liabilities transferred to the State.]

In 1981, the State Government announced it would spend ,000 building a Marine Science Study Centre at Queenscliff. The Victorian Institute of Marine Sciences planned to provide the funds to equip the State-funded building and cover operating costs.
