The Journal of Ocean Technology (JOT) is a scientific periodical published by the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University of Newfoundland. It is designed to cater to all segments of the global ocean technology community. Its mission is to expand global knowledge and understanding of ocean technologies, to serve as the medium for publishing world-leading research, and to promote innovation that contributes to responsible ocean utilization and management.

For many involved in oceans, regularly publishing results of research, development, and commercialization activities continues to be an effective means of advancing their work and their organizations. While there are many communication tools available to assist in this process, the scientific journal continues to serve as the main currency for intellectual capital and as a mainstay for both disseminating and validating innovation across the industry.

Composed of three sections, the JOT offers full coverage for the oceans community. In addition to a number of columns and special features, the JOT includes educational, informative essays and peer-review open access papers on science, technology, and engineering. The JOT is published quarterly and each issue focuses on a different theme of ocean technology such as tourism and marine recreation; science and technology; fisheries; aquaculture and biodiversity; energy; sovereignty and defence; marine transportation; environment, safety, and security.
