Associação para Investigação do Meio Marinho - (AIMM)


AIMM is an international organization dedicated to increased research, understanding, and conservation of the world’s treasured marine systems and the creatures who dwell within them.

Enhancing International Conservation Efforts

The Marine Environment Research Association – AIMM was born by the initiative of a group of Portuguese marine biologists and researchers who aim at developing research and educational programs towards the marine environment. The organization is specifically concerned with the conservation of several marine species of cetaceans, marine turtles, sharks and birds. These conservation efforts are broken down into three major categories: research, awareness and education, and oceanic expeditions.  Each category contributes to AIMM’s dedication to providing a scientific basis for conservation efforts, educating the public, and developing a more rigorous code of conduct for marine tourism activities. AIMM was founded in 2010 as a non-profit, non-governmental organization with international scope.
