The Bahamas Agriculture and Marine Science Institute has signed a memorandum of understanding with the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.

The MoU “formalizes the collaboration efforts between to two institutions in education, research, and training,” the government said in a release.

The BAMSI is already building a college campus on the Bahamian island of Andros, with the school set to be a college institution awarding associate of science degrees, diplomas and skills certificates in the marine sciences and agriculture.

The purpose of the institute is to “establish and operate an adaptable state of the art comprehensive tutorial commercial farm, which will include crop and livestock agriculture enterprises, production of fresh fruits, condiments, fish, meat and value added processed items, primarily for the domestic market of the Bahamas.”

The agreement was executed during a signing ceremony at the Rosenstiel School earlier this month on Virginia Key, located between Miami and the island of Key Biscayne.
