SUBMON is a NGO that carries out environmental projects related to the conservation, study, management and awareness of the marine environment. Its goal is to reach the sustainable use and management of the ocean and its resources. SUBMON is made up of a multidisciplinary team of specialists and professionals, including biologists, veterinarians, engineers, divers and teachers with 15 to 25 years’ experience working in the marine environment worldwide, adapting well to different cultural settings and working conditions.
