About Us

The BIO Bedford Institute of Oceanography (BIO) Oceans Association (OA) was formed in 1998 by a group of retired public servants previously involved in Ocean Sciences and Hydrography who share an interest in BIO. In addition to social activities, the OA is concerned with the history of BIO and with enhancing public knowledge about the oceans. Membership is open to anyone who shares our goals. We'd love to have you be a part of the group!
