About the Scientific Committee

The main task of the CMAS Scientific Committee is to bring into focus the important issues related to the marine environment: invasive species, coastal ecosystems, biodiversity observation and monitoring to divers around the world.

In fact, divers are the first and best witnesses of the underwater environment condition and must play the role as a major and dynamic actor of marine environment protection.


The CMAS Scientific Committee is settling the basis of this participative approach of divers to the underwater environment preservation
