Given its remote location and protected status, Palmyra has become a hub of conservation research in the blue-water marine protected area on coral reefs, fisheries, oceanography, invasive species removal, tropical rainforest restoration, and many other topics.

The Fishing for Science program launched in 2018. On December 5, 2022, the 1,000th fish was tagged, a significant milestone in a challenging environment.
