"It is urgent to marry Ecology and Economy"
"It has become obvious: Only a better knowledge of the Ocean will allow its virtuous exploitation while respecting Nature for the benefit of future generations… because the Earth is at the end of its rope. Let's stop piling up alarmist scientific findings, and consider the Ocean as the most gigantic resource of Humanity and demonstrate that Ecology and Economy can be combined effectively while respecting Nature, by virtuously exploiting what it offers us and which we must preserve for Human being survival on the planet, because we fundamentally do not have more rights there than any wild animal. I consider that if the Ocean becomes a source of profits other than the fruits of plunder, a controlled economy will contribute to its long-term preservation."
Yvan Griboval (at the helm) and Maxime Dreno have been teaming up since spring 2014 on the occasion of all OceanoScientific Expeditions carried out in double or crew, as here in October 2020 during the first OceanoScientific Contaminants Mediterranean Expedition - Photo OceanoScientific 2020

Since 2011 OceanoScientific contributes to the implementation of oceanographic sailing expeditions without CO2 emissions in regions of the seas that have seldom been explored if at all, to promote better knowledge of the causes and consequences of climate change and pollution.
As of 2021 OceanoScientific focuses its efforts on promoting the exploitation by biomimicry of the coral ecosystem for the benefit of human well-being and health, in accordance with the Nagoya Protocol.
OceanoScientific acts in accordance with the standards and recommendations of United Nations (UN) agencies and the international scientific community, in conjunction with non-governmental organizations dedicated to the knowledge and preservation of the Ocean and its biodiversity.
Patronage is a vital source of funding for these actions.
