Mission

The Journal of Ocean Technology (JOT) is a technological 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.

Composed of three sections, the JOT offers full coverage for the ocean community. In addition to a number of columns and special features, the JOT includes educational, informative, open access essays, articles, and peer-review papers on 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; technology; fisheries; aquaculture and biodiversity; energy; sovereignty and defence; marine transportation; environment, safety, and security.

You can electronically access all issues of the JOT by clicking on “Back Issues” from the top menu bar.
