The Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries (IOF) is a scientific public institution founded in 1930 as the first national scientific and research institution dealing with research of the sea. It is Croatian National Reference Centre for the marine research with almost 100 employees of whom more than 50 are PhD experts in different field of research. Since the founding scientific activity of the Institute is multidisciplinary and covers research in the fields of biological, chemical and physical oceanography, sedimentology, and fisheries biology and aquaculture. The IOF research vessels Bios and Navicula are used for oceanographic and fisheries research activities, designed specifically for surveys and data collection for both coastal and open-sea waters.
