MEMBER for Flinders Liz Penfold has welcomed the education opportunities that will come with the $4.8 million expansion of the Lincoln Marine Science Centre.

"MISA's vision is to establish South Australia as the internationally recognised centre for excellence in southern temperate marine research, education, teaching and development," she said.

Chancellor of Flinders University Sir Eric Neal said teaching and training could be 'seamless' from secondary to degree levels.

"We already have credit transfer between TAFE and Flinders University in the study of aquaculture," he said.

The first stage of construction at the Lincoln Marine Science Centre is $4.8 million and due to begin in the second half of 2006 with four further stages to follow.
