Since 1989, a number of marine biological surveys have been carried out under the auspices of the Royal Irish Academy, and the National University of Ireland, Cork. Much of the work was carried out on exposed shores, at the western end of the island.
In addition, there have been deep water surveys of the marine life around the coastline of the island.
Aglaothamnion priceanum, a diminutive new species of seaweed known only from two wave-exposed sites in Ireland and Britain was discovered during fieldwork on Clare Island in 1990
