About Marine Life of Mumbai

Marine Life of Mumbai (MLOM) aims to present to you the fascinating array of marine life right here on the big city's shores. To take you on a journey of rediscovery of these forgotten natural treasures. And to collectively think about what we stand to lose if these seaside spaces, in many ways the lifeline of the city's existence through the ages, continue to be ignored in the face of the city's bigger ideas.

MLOM aims to do its job using a number of on-field approaches to engage diverse audiences and support scientifically useful documentation, along with easy, open dissemination of the information we gather. We are a non-profit, entirely volunteer-driven and citizen-dependent initiative.
