    Marine biological research in India dates back to the 18th century, and the surveys and expeditions conducted by Europeans, particularly the British. The most notable among these pioneers were great naturalists such as Francis Day (1829-1889) , Nelson Annandale (1876-1924) and Herbert Robinson (1874-1929) who worked during the latter part o f the 19th century and early 20th century. This foundation helped India to create a network o f marine research laboratories in government funded institutions and universities all along the coastline.
