Mission Statement: The
Ocean Science Foundation (OSF) is a non-profit
non-governmental organization (NGO) set up to
facilitate research on endangered tropical marine
ecosystems. Our mission is to collaborate with
conservation and academic NGOs in scientific research
projects based in developing countries, especially
projects on the ecology and conservation of coral
reefs. Among other projects, OSF is developing
a 53-foot catamaran as a research platform for
expeditions in the field.
Updates: OSF is sponsoring
the development of a new revised version of Jack
Randall's classic book Caribbean Reef Fishes.
Planned completion in 2013/4.
The Journal of the Ocean
Science Foundation is now publishing its sixth
volume, for the first time with multiple articles
per issue and over 50 pages in length. JOSF is
especially honored to publish taxonomic papers
by Jack Randall and Gerry Allen, both pioneers
in the field of reef fish taxonomy.
