|Abstract: ||The Nigerian Institute for Oceanography and Marine Research (NIOMR) established in November 1975 by the Research Institute Establishment Order of 1975 has the responsibilities to conduct research into the resources and geological/geophysical, chemical and physical characteristics of the Nigerian territorial waters and the high seas. NIOMR also conducts research to fish utilization as well as Extension and Liaison Services. Since the establishment of NIOMR, a total of 35 occasional papers and 109 technical papers had been published to expose the research findings of the Institute to various stakeholders. These technical papers were previously published as standalone papers. In order to improve the quality, publication and circulation of scientific information from the Institute NIOMR’s Technical Committee was set up in June 2007.
I am happy to note that the new Technical Publication Committee has coordinated the publication of this new NIOMR Technical Paper Series as volumes. Each Volume which may consist of 5 or more papers will be subsequently published on a half yearly basis. The papers in this new series have been critically peer reviewed both internally and by external scientists. I hope that with the release of this maiden technical paper series, NIOMR scientists will seize the opportunity to make their research findings available to the scientific community, educational, government and private stakeholders. It is my believe that this publication and subsequent editions, will further extend the frontiers of knowledge and contribute to the body of scientific information needed for the socio-economic development and sustainable management of Nigeria’s marine coastal environment and resources.|
