Institute of Marine Science (IMS) was established in 1981 to acquire superior knowledge of our marine environment. Advanced knowledge of sea and skill in various fields of marine science are required for mariculture, seafood quality, seaweed culture, seashells/ pearl industry, oil/ gas operators and naval warfare etc. The IMS undertakes research in marine science including ecological, biological, biochemical, chemical, geological studies on marine life of northern Arabian Sea. Marine resources of Pakistan are still untapped, which must be given due attention to contribute greater share in economic growth of Pakistan. Without requisite expertise in various fields of marine science it is not possible to exploit the immense wealth of our productive, rich coastal zones and continental shelves.
The Institute’s mission is to conduct avant-garde research, train young scientists, provide expertise to governmental or nongovernmental agencies and industries to accomplish optimal protection for and exploitation of our marine resources and to promote fresh knowledge to constitute public policy and maritime doctrine
