Monterey Area Research Institutions' Network for Education

Preparing Tomorrow’s Ocean Leaders



What's coming up next?

Secure Oceans: Recommendations for the World's Largest Crime Scene
Irvine Auditorium, Middlebury Institute of International Studies
Tuesday, November 1st 2016, 6-8pm

The pillage of the world’s oceans represents threats to vital U.S. and global economic, environmental and security interests. There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that our oceans are the world’s largest crime scene due to rampant illegal fishing, trafficking of drugs, arms, and persons, and growing conflict over fishing grounds. Join us for a lecture and panel discussion on innovative policy and technological solutions to amplify, accelerate and strengthen the global response to protecting our oceans. To register for the event, click here.
