Mote Marine Laboratory is an independent not-for-profit marine research organization based on City Island in Sarasota, Fla. Mote is dedicated to advancing the science of the sea through the study of marine and estuarine ecosystems, through the public Mote Aquarium and through an education division that provides programs for all ages.

Founded by Dr. Eugenie Clark in 1955 in Cape Haze, Florida (and originally known as Cape Haze Marine Laboratory until its renaming in honor of William R. Mote, his wife Lenore and his sister, Betty Mote Rose, major benefactors of the Laboratory) Mote's early research was focused on sharks. Since 1978, Mote has been based in Sarasota, Florida.

Mote Marine Laboratory is celebrating its 55th Anniversary throughout 2010. The Lab was recognized for its 55 years of marine science with a resolution in the Florida House and Senate in March 2010. Founder Clark was also recognized in March 2010 with an induction to the Florida Women's Hall of Fame.

As of winter 2009/2010, Mote employed over 200 staff members conducting research on sharks, red tide and other environmental toxins, marine mammals, sea turtles, coral reefs, fisheries, coastal ecology and aquaculture (sustainable fish farming). Since 1978 the Laboratory has expanded to include a 10.5-acre (4.2 ha) campus in Sarasota, with field stations and public exhibits in Key West, field stations in Summerland Key and Charlotte Harbor and Mote Aquaculture Research Park in eastern Sarasota County. Florida's extensive coastline and marine and estuarine environments have enabled Mote scientists to build a platform of marine research conducted in the near shore environment. Mote has about 1,400 volunteers who contribute more than 200,000 volunteer hours to the organization
