About SMF

A centre for the marine environment…

SMF was one of three marine centres established by the Swedish government 1989. Now our organisation is a part of Stockholm University, with connections to the regions’ marine environmental society, and a main focus on the Baltic Sea.

…with important national collaborators

SMF is one of four units that the Swedish Institute for the Marine Environment consist of. Together with the Universities of Umeå, Linnaeus and Gothenburg, we provide the Institute with access to a broad knowledge base.
