The Florida Institute of Oceanography (FIO) was established by the State University System (SUS) to support and enhance Florida's coastal marine science, oceanography and related management programs through education, research, and public outreach. The FIO facilitates the activities of educators, scientists, and agencies responding to state, regional, national and international issues through provision of centralized facilities and research vessels. The FIO facilitates the programs of scientists, educators, and their students at member institutions, and coordinates an infrastructure to address the marine concerns of state and federal agencies, and the public.
