Based on emerging scientific trends and the roles that field stations and marine labs play in research, education, and stewardship, this report recommends the following goals to guide the future of FSMLs: (1) increase the value to society of the science done at FMSLs, and ensure public understanding of that value; (2) augment the scientific value of FSMLs by increasing the flow of information, both between FSMLs and scientists and among FSMLs themselves; (3) enhance the synergies between research and education; (4) promote appropriate access by scientists and students to terrestrial, aquatic, and marine systems; and (5) improve the operational effectiveness of FSMLs.
