is a not for profit organization established in 2001 to promote marine research and exploration throughout the world, Promare is a
public charity, 501(c)(3).

to media reports, Msubs have recently won a £2 million pound contract
from the Royal Navy. Some might think this a contradiction, in terms of
ocean conservation, where charities may be better served without potential conflicts of interest to cloud issues in the minds of
contributors and the watching public. Otherwise, some might think the exercise is underpinned with
military, rather than conservation objectives - since the US also have
projects. Though, and as seen on their website, Promare appear to
undertake many marine projects, that are no
doubt highly valued in the scientific oceanic community.
