Abstract
    An international symposium was convened by Alexandria University, 3-7 September 1983, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the John Murray expedition to the Indian Ocean on board the Egyptian research vessel MABAHISS (1933-1934). The symposium was co-sponsored by UNESCO and its IOC with several Egyptian, British and international organizations. The present report describes this activity, and provides abstracts and syntheses of the papers presented to the symposium in the various marine scientific disciplines covering the areas of the Indian Ocean, the Red Sea and the adjacent gulfs and seas. Within the framework of the symposiums, round-table discussions were organized by the IOC to identify gaps in marine scientific knowledge in these areas and to recommend future cooperative research to fill these gaps. The discussions led to a series of recommendations which identified research needs in interdisciplinary areas as well as in the major disciplinary fields within marine science. Details of the recommendations are given in this report.
