    The southern Ocean is formed by the merging of the waters of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans south of the 60ºS latitude and constitutes nearly 4% of the earth’s surface. Although it is the second smallest ocean among the five, and probably the least explored, its marine living resources such as the Antarctic krill, iconic whales, seabirds and seals are well known as important links in the marine ecosystems. The mention of oceanographic expeditions has for generations, instilled a sense of adventurism through exploration of new horizons, in a scientific quest for knowledge. The Indian Southern Ocean Research Programme was initiated in 2004 by the Ministry of Earth Sciences, Govt. of India to foster multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional research activities. Some of the knowledge gained during participation in such scientific expeditions and with special reference to the cephalopod resources of the Southern Ocean is shared in this issue of MFIS. Closer home, the experience and insights on the various facets of aquaculture through fish seed surveys, wetland site restoration activities and seaweed farming have been documented. It is hoped that these notes will kindle further scientific curiosity on these topics among our esteemed readers.
