Volunteers are central to RUMFS research, education, and outreach activities. The Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve (JCNERR) provides the mechanism for these activities.

Volunteers can participate in a wide range of field, laboratory, and outreach activities. In the field, they may assist with sampling on boats or from the shore by trawling, seining, and trapping fishes and invertebrates. In the laboratory, they might perform faunal identification, dissection, or related analysis. Other activities include data entry, and library and office assistance. Others have provided logistical support for field activities and sample delivery.
