Our mission:


The Gulf Estuarine Research Society is a not for profit educational organization for people interested in estuarine and coastal issues centering on the Gulf of Mexico. The fundamental goal is to promote research in the Gulf of Mexico. GERS is a very active research society with a membership of scientists, researchers, and students from universities, agencies and research labs along the Gulf coast.

GERS is an affiliate society of the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation (CERF). We encourage you to join and support CERF. CERF members receive great benefits, including access to an international job board and tools for early career scientists to become leaders in their fields. Join or renew your CERF membership today!
