The facilities at the Nigerian Institute for Oceanography and Marine Research (NIOMR) encompass a diverse range of capabilities that underpin our research and development efforts. These facilities include:
Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, our laboratories support research in various marine science and technology domains, such as fisheries science, aquaculture, marine biology, marine geography, and marine physics.
Our jetty serves as a crucial point for launching and docking research vessels, as well as for handling equipment and supplies.
Vital for our aquaculture research, this machine produces high-quality fish feed pellets.
Our fleet of vessels is equipped with scientific tools like echosounders, trawls, and plankton nets for research at sea.
The meteorological data collected from our weather station supports research on climate change and its effects on marine environments.
Our pilot plant facilitates the development and testing of innovative fish canning technologies and products.
This facility is integral to our fishing and research operations, where fishing nets are crafted and repaired.
Our fish food engineering workshop is used to develop and test new fish feed processing technologies and equipment.
NIOMR recently upgraded its facilities, including a state-of-the-art fish genetics lab, a new research vessel, an improved weather station, an expanded net loft, a fresh pilot plant for fish canning, and a new fish food engineering workshop.
These upgraded facilities empower NIOMR's research initiatives by providing scientists with essential tools and equipment. They also bolster fishing, research operations, and innovation in fish processing and feed technologies. NIOMR's facilities are integral to its research, aiding in sustainable marine resource management and environmental protection.
