Biological monitoring is one of the main methods used today to determine the health status of ecosystems. Solid information is gathered on which to base the development and evaluation of environmental management strategies. Biological monitoring is a fundamental part of environmental impact studies. Through this it is possible to determine a baseline, the description and comparison of environmental trends. It also verifies the fulfillment of objectives of a project.















“Our passion for the ocean led us both to study marine biology. In 2013 we decided to combine our talents, energies and interests in to this commercial enterprise. Since then Marine Operations has grown rapidly within the field of biofouling, and in short time established itself locally as a leading company in underwater maintenance services.

We are confident that Marine Operations will continue to thrive, making La Paz a well-known port for ship underwater maintenance where innovative and eco-friendly management solutions for biofouling will be developed.”
