Deep Sea Fish

Deep sea fish are the Fish that live in the dark deep ocean portions below the Sunlit surface waters that is below the epipelagic or photic zone of the sea. Deep sea organisms contain gas filled spaces. Ex: Lanternfish, ridgehead, Angler fish etc. 

Marine Biology

Marine biology is the scientific study of organisms in the ocean or other marine or brackish bodies of water. Marine biology classifies species based on the environment rather than on taxonomy. Marine biology differs from marine ecology as marine ecology is focused on how organisms interact with each other and the environment, while biology is the study of the organisms themselves.

Sea Transportation

Sea transportation in today's shipping market have evolved into three separate but closely connected segments: bulk shipping, liner shipping and specialized shipping. Although these segments belong to the same industry, each carries out different tasks and has a very different character.

Marine Engineering

Marine engineering is the discipline of applying engineering sciences, and can include mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronic engineering, and computer science, to the development, design, operation and maintenance of watercraft propulsion and also on-board systems and oceanographic technology.

Ship Building

Shipbuilding is the construction of ships and other floating vessels. It normally takes place in a specialized facility known as a shipyard. Shipbuilders, also called shipwrights. Shipbuilding and ship repairs, both commercial and military, are referred to as "naval engineering". 

Ocean Floor Mining

Ocean floor mining is a relatively new mineral retrieval process that takes place on the ocean floor. Ocean mining sites are usually around large areas of polymetallic nodules or active and extinct hydrothermal vents. Remote ocean mining is a moderately new mineral recovery handle that happens on the sea depths.

Marine Science

Marine Science is the study of the ocean, its ecosystems and its life forms as well as the study of coastal environments, oceanic currents and the sea floor. Marine Science also known as Oceanology.

Marine Conservation

Marine conservation, also known as marine resources conservation, is the protection and preservation of ecosystems in oceans and seas. Marine conservation focuses on limiting human-caused damage to marine ecosystems, and on restoring damaged marine ecosystems.

Marine Pollution

Marine pollution occurs when harmful, or potentially harmful, effects result from the entry into the ocean of chemicals, industrial, agricultural and residential waste, noise, or the spread of invasive organisms and from nonpoint sources such as agricultural runoff, wind-blown debris and dust. 

Marine Mammal Research

Marine mammals, which include seals, whales, dolphins, porpoises, manatees, walruses and polar bears form a diverse group of 129 species that rely on the ocean for their existence.The Sea Mammal Research Unit gives fair, autonomous and imaginative science that has high significance to society. 

Marine Reptiles

Marine reptiles are reptiles which have become secondarily adapted for an aquatic or semi-aquatic life in a marine environment. Marine Reptiles are primarily cold blooded vertebrates adapted to aquatic life in sea. Example: Sea turtles, Sea snakes, Salt water crocodile and marine lizards.

Olive Ridley

The Olive Ridley sea turtle (Scientific Name: Lepidochelys olivacea) is the smallest abundant sea turtle found in warm waters of the pacific and Indian oceans with an adult carapace length averaging. The heart-shaped carapace is characterized by four pairs of pore-bearing inframarginal scutes on the bridge, two pairs of prefrontals, and up to 9 lateral scutes per side. 

Coral Reefs

Coral reefs are diverse underwater ecosystems held together by calcium carbonate structures secreted by corals. Most coral reefs are built from stony corals, which in turn consist of polyps that cluster in groups. They held together by calcium carbonate structures secreted by corals.

Reef Biology

Reef biology a sizable field of research and is the study of specialized productive underwater ecosystem, Specifically the Biology of Reefs and Reef Organisms.  The off-reef floor is the shallow sea floor surrounding a reef. This zone occurs by reefs on continental shelves. 

Reef Biome

The coral reef biome is one of the most important and distinctive types of biological communities found on Earth and are the richest of all marine biomes. Coral reef biome is located within shallow deep Ocean.

Deep Sea Fishing

Deep sea fishing is the catching of fish that live in the deep parts of the sea. It is often called offshore boat fishing, sport fishing, and big game fishing. Deep-sea fish live in the darkness below the sunlit surface waters, that is below the epipelagic or photic zone of the sea. 

Black smokers

A black smoker is a kind of hydrothermal vent that can be found on the ocean floor. Black spot is a vent along the ocean floor from which the geothermally super-heated water comes out. It is a crack in the planet's surface from which geothermally heated water comes out. 

Submerged volcanos

Submerged Volcanos can be defined as the under water vents of the earth surface from which Magma can erupt. They are estimated to account for 75% of annual magma output. The majority valcanoes are located near areas of tectonic plate movement, known as ocean ridges. 

Deep Sea Drilling

Deep sea drilling is a project, making the long pipes equipped with drill to descend into the deeper portions of the sea to collect sediment and rock beneath the seafloor. Geophysical and geochemical measurements were made during and after drilling, and occasionally long-term seismic monitoring devices were installed in the holes. 

Ocean Temperature

Ocean Temperature is the measure of heat energy in the oceanic environment. Air masses in the Earth's atmosphere are highly modified by sea surface temperatures within a short distance of the shore. Warm sea surface temperatures are known to be a cause of tropical cyclogenesis over the Earth's oceans. 

Ocean Currents

An ocean current is more or less permanent or continuous, directed movement of ocean water that flows in one of the Earth's oceans. Ocean current is the directed movement of the ocean water by virtue of the forces like wind, earth's rotation, gravitation of the moon etc.

Oceans and International Law

Ocean International Law is aimed to protect and establishing guidelines for managing marine natural resources. It defines the rights and responsibilities of nations with respect to their use of the world’s oceans.

Algal Blooms

Algal Bloom is a rapid increase in the population of microscopic algae in water. Algal blooms may occur in fresh water as well as marine environments. Algal bloom events involving toxic or other harmful phytoplantons are called Harmful algal blooms.

Marine Business Oppurtunity

Marine Business is the business pertaining to sea which includes Sail boats, sailors, yachts, yachting, boats, boating offshore, inshore sail boat racing, marine food etc.

OMICS International Organises 1000+ Conferences Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 50000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members and 10 million readers.


*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times they are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 than, impact factor = Y/X.
