Ciso, here makes a humble initiative to create awareness among the local community, especially the youngsters to know more about the ocean which is diverse in biota and environment.

The aspects of impact of ocean on climate, need for the protection of ocean, endangered species in the ocean, etc. needs special attention in general awareness perspectives.

Therefore we built a centre and named it Marine World.
