About Us

JAMS is an independent marine research and consulting company based in Saipan, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. Our mission is to support the conservation and sustainable management of coral reefs and other marine ecosystems. We conduct independent applied research and provide scientific support services to government agencies and NGOs. Through public-private partnership, we hope to optimize the use of limited resources to maximize benefits to coral reefs, associated ecosystems, and the communities that rely on them.

Our activities largely fall under three general categories: research, conservation, and restoration.

Science is the foundation of all our work. We use scientific principles to develop innovative tools, technologies, and methodologies that ultimately inform robust and sustainable conservation and restoration strategies.
