    Marine Resource and Ocean Science is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal which provides a forum for the publication of papers addressing all areas of marine resource development & utilization, and related ocean science and engineering. The journal aims to be the premier resource of seminal and insightful research and showcases for researchers in both academia and industry, constructing a platform of inspiration for exploring the relationship between marine resource and ocean science & engineering, promoting the development and utilization of marine resource, and looking for a balance between the marine resource development and environmental ecology.

    Marine resources are materials and attributes found in the ocean which have intrinsic or economic value. They may include a wide variety of things: biological diversity, fish and seafood supplies, oil and gas, minerals, sand and gravel, renewable energy resources, tourism potential, unique ecosystems like coral reefs, etc. They may also bring the uniqueness and opportunity for education and human enrichment which cannot be quantified. Therefore, the way we develop and utilize marine resource will be of great importance.

    This journal focuses on the breadth of the marine resource and ocean science & engineering, addressing various theoretical, methodological, epistemological, empirical and practical issues in the fields of ocean science and engineering, the related emerging technologies and their application in marine resource development and utilization, and environmental ecology protection. It can provide a high-profile, leading-edge forum for collaboratively exploring the state-of-the-art advances and innovations in the marine resource and ocean science & engineering, and bring the research community and practitioners the most promising and ground-breaking research, innovative concepts, best practices, and insightful case studies. Marine Resource and Ocean Science is led by a team of globally well-known and enthusiastic editors, and the authors are welcome to publish their high-caliber research papers in this journal.
