Marine Biological Association of India Reminisces and Reflections

Silas, E G (2009) Marine Biological Association of India Reminisces and Reflections. In: International Symposium Marine Ecosystems Challenges and Opportunities, 9-12 February 2009, Cochin.



The saga of the Marine Biological Association oflndia which started in December 1958, and the biotic environment in which it was nurtured to attain its present standing, nationally and internationally, completing half a century would not have happened, but for the untiring efforts of its founding father, late Dr. Santhappan Jones - a visionary, an administrator, a man of wit and compassion, and a futurologist. Who else could think of starting a scientific association in the then remote Central Marine Fisheries Research Station (CMFRS), Mandapam Camp? A person of grit, courage and confidence, he could see the potential and the untapped resources available for organizing such a venture.
