Thriving Oceans, for a healthier world.
HSWRI is committed to the development and implementation of research, conservation and education programs that are founded in “good science”. Adherence to the highest standards of excellence for scientific research is the foundation for scientific integrity. It is an essential criterion to maintain public trust and support of science and scientific research. The peer-review process for scientific grants and publications is the primary process for the scientific community to evaluate the quality of scientific research. In addition, the administrative and scientific leadership of the Institute defined basic principles for Institute science to provide a philosophical basis to guide research program development and Senior Research Biologist decisions.
