NAZCA – Institute for Marine Research

Our mission is to deepen the knowledge on the marine-coastal ecosystems of the tropic-equatorial pacific and to promote the conservation of biodiversity as a value of worldwide importance. Moreover, we aim to develop strategies for the sustainable use of marine resources that at the same time fit in our conservation objectives and assure the long-term wellbeing of humans depending on these resources.
