MOROCCAN MARINE DATA MANAGEMENT

National Institute of Fisheries Research


MISSIONS

NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF FISHERIES RESEARCH (INRH)

is a public organisation endowed of the moral personality and financial autonomy and is a national organism whose activities are turned exclusively toward the management of fisheries resources and the marine environment . It was created on July29, 1996.

Fisheries Resources assessment and Follow-up of their exploitation

 Marine and Coastal Ecosytem study

Monitoring of the quality of the marine environment and its healthiness

 Assesm ent of aquaculture environment potentialities along the national coastal areas and carring out investigation, in order to contribute to the development of the moroccan aquaculture.

 Test of Fishing techniques and sea food enhancement

National Institute of Fisheries Research


OBJECTIVES

INRH is in charge of undertaking all activities related to research, studies, experimental actions and sea/land work in order to assess, manage, preserve and enhance fisheries and aquacole resources.

 Sustainable and responsible management of the resources.

 Preservation of living marine resources

 Preservation of the marine environment and consumer health protection against seafood consumption

 Scientific review for the general public and development of aquaculture.

Mission:

to assess continuously the level of biological (microorganisms, toxins) and chemical contamination of the environment

to serve as an alarm system in case of phenomenon disturbing the ecosystem(red tides, toxic phytoplankton…)

to support Professional and administration

to classify seashell ’s areas and their level of healthiness
