National Oceanographic And Maritime Institute (NOAMI)
National Oceanographic and Maritime Institute (NOAMI) was established in late 1978 by a group of marine science enthusiasts in order to promote education and training in oceanographic sciences, assist in the creation of a knowledge base and disseminate it to the people in general and to the decision-makers in particular so that socio-economic development could be achieved through proper exploration and exploitation of our oceanographic resources. Over the past forty-two years, NOAMI has been carrying out work in promoting ocean sciences through executing projects and holding conferences, seminars, and symposia at the international, regional, and national levels. NOAMI also sends its delegates to participate in international conferences/workshops/seminars etc. The information gathered through such participation is disseminated to scientists, teachers, and students of the country through periodic meetings and seminars and through publications of technical papers, and through the NOAMI journal; newsletter. NOAMI has been made the contact in Bangladesh point for the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO by the Govt. of Bangladesh.
