Hello E. Mel,

BML or Bolinao Marine Laboratory is a subunit of the Marine Science Institute (MSI), a research arm in the field of marine sciences of the University of the Philippines Diliman (UPD). BML is located at Bolinao, Pangasinan, Philippines, about 6 hour drive from Quezon City, Philippines, where UPD and MSI are located.

I believe BML is one of the largest and most respected research institution in the marine sciences in Asia. The Philippines, being one of the 3 members of the “coral triangle” (World Center of Marine Biodiversity), offers a rich marine biodiversity as its field laboratory.   

BML has a very wide range of topics with regard to the marine studies. Also, UP-MSI-BML is the Philippines National Center of Excellence in Marine Sciences.

Please check the above links to these intitutions. You can also look at SEAFDEC, another marine laboratory in the island of Panay, Philippines. Goodluck!
