The Plentzia Marine Station (PIE-UPV/EHU) is the University of the Basque Country´s (UPV/EHU) marine research infrastructure, established in July 2012. PIE has an excellent strategic location by the beach in Plentzia (Bizkaia, Basque Country), next to the Butroi river estuary. Plentzia is a 3000 people coastal village connected with Bilbao by Metro (35 min trip every 20 min) and located at 15 min driving distance from the UPV/EHU main Campus, the Bilbao Airport and the Zamudio Technological Park. 25 min driving distance to Bilbao centre.

It is a centre in a building conceived one century ago to fight against bone tuberculosis; which remains in the XXI century to promote research, education and dissemination aimed at protecting both ocean health and human wealth and at promoting environmental science, technology and awareness. PIE is small but wide-scoped, well-defined but flexible, ad hoc designed for its purposes but modular, dynamic but long-lasting, and with strict controls necessary for excellence but wide windows open towards people.
In the PIE, research is focused, first, upon conducting high quality experimentation under controlled lab and field conditions; second, upon studying phenomena in the areas of cell biology, molecular biology and genetics, experimental physiology, toxicology and pathology, stress biology, systems biology and biopharmacy; and, finally, upon applying advanced methodologies of manipulation and experimentation with marine organisms, in vitro assays, genomics, proteomics, antibody technology, cryotechnology, spectroscopy, microscopy, image analysis and data treatment. The PIE's research major goals are the development of early warning strategies, the application of non-invasive and non-destructive techniques, and the understanding of the mechanisms underneath the environmental syndromes. The dichotomy ""Ocean and Health"" constitutes its alma mater:
• Healthy marine ecosystems support human well-being
• Oceans are source of human health resources
