CIIMAR was established in 2000 at the University of Porto and mobilises a multidisciplinary, highly skilled and motivated team that works at the frontier of Ocean Knowledge and Innovation.

CIIMAR fosters an integrated approach to Ocean and coastal areas promoting the understanding and knowledge on physical, chemical and biological dynamics of these environments and the impact of natural and human disturbances, aiming to unravel links between these processes, grasp Ocean and ecosystems functioning and responses to global changes.

CIIMAR uses this knowledge-base to promote the natural capital and the sustained management of marine resources through monitoring of ecosystems health, optimization of aquaculture, and biotechnological exploitation of the resources for environmental and human health applications.
