Philip Henry Gosse[1] (6. april, 181023. august 1888.) bio je engleski prirodoslovac i popularizator prirodnih znanosti, pronalazač suvremenog podvodnog akvarija te jedan od pionira morske biologije. Gosse je također poznat kao autor Omphalosa, knjige koja je pokušala pomiriti teoriju dugih geoloških doba Charlesa Lyella s biblijskim navodima o Postanju. Gosse je nakon smrti prikazan kao despot i vjerski fanatik u Father and Son (1907), hvaljenom književnom djelu koje je napisao njegov sin Edmund.
