VIMAS' primary objectives are to:
- Increase interest in and awareness of marine career opportunities for the Virgin Islands' youth.
- Assist coastal planning and decision-making to foster a balance between development and our living and non-living resources.
- Increase the general public's awareness and understanding of marine resources and marine affairs.
- VIMAS agents achieve these objectives through educational programs, workshops, presentations, dissemination of informational materials, and through cooperative involvement with various committees, organizations, and institutions.
