The Ocean Science Foundation (OSF) promotes research on coral reefs and other endangered tropical marine ecosystems
We work with conservation, academic and other non-governmental organizations (NGOs) on projects in developing countries.

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 2015/2016.

The Journal of the Ocean Science Foundation has now published its eleventh volume, with ever increasing frequency and wider authorships. JOSF is especially honored to publish taxonomic papers by Jack Randall, Gerry Allen, and Dave Greenfield- all pioneers in the field of reef fish taxonomy.
