    The paper gives a brief review of the progress in oceanography in India since the middle of the nineteenth century when this important field of science had its beginning in this country. In order to make future planning more purposeful and for the proper growth of the subject, the need for a stock-taking and development of strong schools specializing in different aspects of oceanography is emphasized. The inescapability of a co-operative approach in oceanography, if substantial progress is to be achieved, is reiterated. The paper concludes with a tribute to Dr. N. K. Panikkar who has been the main architect in planning and organizing the many National Institutes dealing with oceanography, marine biology and fisheries.
