Journal of Marine Science is a peer-reviewed, open-access academic journal specializing in the field of marine science research. Even after thousands of years, scientists have yet to fully uncover the mysteries of the world’s water bodies. The journal is dedicated to the presentation of the discoveries and insights in marine science research.

The scope of the Journal of Marine Science includes, but is not limited to:

  • Marine ecosystem
  • Nearshore and ocean circulation
  • Ocean floor dynamics
  • Marine geology
  • Chemical oceanography
  • Physical oceanography
  • Operational oceanography
  • Met-ocean data measurements and analysis
  • Climate change effects in marine and coastal environment

Abstract: Recent advances in molecular biology make it possible to sequence not only genes or genomes, but also to understand codon dynamics. For the organelle genes of these organisms, a small set of preferred codons are used for encoding proteins. For the first time, this paper treats the divergence of s...

Abstract: Severe weather systems can generate large waves and storm surges which can cause many fatalities in coastal areas. In extreme circumstances a single cyclone caused up to 500,000 fatalities in the Bay of Bengal in 1970. Adaption by authorities in that region from evacuations and construction of st...

Abstract: Present short communication reports about beach stranding of Porpita porpita (Linnaeus 1758) from the Coast of Mandvi, Kutch during August 2021. Also, this is the first record of the blue button jellyfishes for the northern Gulf of Kutch region. A study was carried out by primary observation and ...



Congratulations to Dr. M. Pilar Cabezas on her appointment as the Associate Editor of Journal of Marine Science


Currently, Dr. M. Pilar Cabezas is a post-Doc researcher at the University of Porto, hired under the project “SARDINOMICS – Development of molecular tools to improve knowledge and management of Sardine stocks”, where I am using Next Generation Sequencing to improve knowledge and management of sardine stocks.
Her main research interest is to obtain a more comprehensive knowledge on marine biodiversity and to investigate the impact that cryptic species and biological invasions may have on our perception about it.
With the joint efforts of the entire editorial team, Journal of Marine Science will soon become an excellent journal in the field of marine science.
