The Galapagos National Park Directorate works to manage and operate the marine ecosystems of the Islands, within the limits of their resilience, to ensure the conservation of its ecological integrity and biodiversity; as well as the rational use of environmental goods and services that they generated for the local population. 


Applied marine research 

The applied marine research of the Galapagos National Park Directorate is focused on the development of various research projects to increase knowledge of marine ecosystems for the proper management and administration of resources, with technical support and strengthening offered by several international cooperation programs.







   Managment programs





Research of
pelagic fish





Oceanographic conditions




Marine Ecosystem

Fisheries Management 

Fishing is a traditional productive activity in the Galapagos. With the increased activity in recent decades, an adequate and participatory management of marine resources is necessary, especially of those species most vulnerable to human activity.
