We advance marine science and technology through outreach, restoration, and research.

Our vision for the 21st century is that marine biotechnology will apply advanced knowledge and tools from marine sciences, engineering, molecular biology and information technology to the understanding of marine habitats and organisms representative of the total diversity of marine systems, in order to obtain scientific information on marine life processes and ecosystems, from the whole organisms to the molecular and genetic levels, that can be turned into new products and approaches for the benefit of a wide range of industries, marine macro- and microbiota and the sustainable wise use and management of the world’s oceans.
