Background

Sea is the source of enormous resources and provides valuable Energy, Minerals, Protein, Aquaculture, Shipping, Port & Maritime logistics, Tourism etc. The Bay of Bengal, the largest bay of the world, is strategically important for all the littoral countries – Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Thailand. The Territorial Waters and Maritime Zones Act 1974 has established the sovereign rights of Bangladesh over the sea and its resources. The maritime boundary delimitation with the neighboring countries generated new opportunities for unhindered exploration and exploitation of the marine resources, ensure the food security of the growing population and contribute the sustainable development of Bangladesh in a changing environment. Considering our rights on vast sea area in the Bay of Bengal under national jurisdiction, there is demand for establishment of a dedicated research institution for studying subjects related to maritime affairs. Establishment of an independent research institution may fill in this void, where researcher can openly discuss and debate to come out with innovative ideas and inputs in the maritime field. Bangladesh Navy, being the main stake holder in maritime sector, has taken this noble initiative to launch BIMRAD. The Institute is registered under the Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860.
