We are based on the beautiful island of Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia and we serve the entire Micronesia region as well as other areas of the Pacific. Founded in 1997 as part of the Ponape Agriculture and Trade School, our initial focus was teaching practical marine sciences to students from all over Micronesia. In 2005, our focus changed to implementing sustainable development projects for rural communities in Pohnpei and the Micronesia region. Because Micronesia is 99% water and marine conservation is critical to sustainable living in the region, our main focus is developing low-impact aquaculture as a means of income generation for communities who sponsor and support marine protected areas. But aquaculture is only one of the areas we specialize in. We also educate communities in climate change mitigation and adaptation; we collaborate with regional institutions in water quality monitoring; we provide research facilities for visiting scientists; and we develop local entrepreneurship through financing and business education.Take some time to visit our pages to learn more about us, our products, and what we do.
