THE FUTUTRE IS IN THE SEA

The Sultanate of Oman has a long coastline with a profound fishing and maritime tradition. Oman is one of the most important countries in the Middle East, offering a rich and diverse marine environment that is yet to be fully explored. Within this marine environment, there are nearly unlimited varieties of organisms and species that could produce a myriad of ground-breaking and lucrative, industrial and commercial, applications and/or products.

Increased investments in the area of strategic research towards developing new products and processes to exploit Oman’s marine resources will trigger new business opportunities and would significantly contribute to the nation’s economy. Exploiting the underutilized marine resources in a sustainable manner requires cutting-edge scientific research and methods. This is one of the many reasons why Oman Centre for Marine Biotechnology (OCMB) was founded.
