Who Are We?

We are fascinated by the sea.

Our mission is to research, monitor and protect the life in marine ecosystems, developing science and technology for the sea, promoting the dissemination and education about its importance for future generations.

Our vision is to be an integrative agent for science and technology, capable of creating solutions to increase the resilience of the oceans, ensuring the conservation of biodiversity.
